Upsetting. Rather very well AND completely upsetting.
But all in the end, the book serves up a good dose of reality, that people are cold, and they're mean, and unemotional, but everyone is also very much human. Screw philosophy and so forth, this book was good in general.
Sure, sure--in the end, this book may never see the daylight of any possible reward, but it is definitely revealing and satisfactory.
The way it all ends is completely untoward--an awry but solid ending to a story that seemed initially exciting and emotionally grating (tears and sorrow clearly excluded), but it was in itself a good adventure of malicious insight.
NO SPOILER here, but the confession in its entirety makes you think more than twice of all the human missteps we take with one another, whether purposefully or accidently, additively with whether or not it be some relished fondness for aggressive debasement and cruelty, or altogether an accidental explosion of tragedies stacked mishappenly.
I'm unsure in the end what this review means, actually, but I give it a good full five stars! Read it people, it's pretty damned good reading.
