This is my kind of book, and I can actually recommend it to other people. Some of the books I love, I can't recommend because of the content, language, scenes etc. This is a great read and very interesting.

Having no chapters and running thoughts of characters together works well for this particular book of troubled people. But, for me, it is a little over the top. Could more things have happened to one unfortunate person?
