*As of the time I finished reading the book, this particular edition had zero reviews on Goodreads, which I think is crazy. Perhaps it’s just this particular edition, and other editions have reviews, but this is the one I have, it was published in 2007 and doesn’t have any reviews, so I think it counts for the category.
