This is a fantastic book, what more can I say?
It's brutal, harsh, and so exquisitely penned. It's stunning, the way the author captures the emotions, anguish and torment are spot on. The story itself is one of human nature, love and far more. It's gripping and I had to read it all in one sitting, I just could not put it down.
While I agree it is not a soft read nor to everyone's tastes I am so glad I chose to read it. It will remain with me for a long time to come, a masterpiece.
