White, Christian is an incredible whirlwind from start to finish. Frantic, painful, obsessive, destructive, and yearning, this is a story about a lost young man.

A really fantastic novel. The only reason I give it four and not five is that there are a few chapters toward the end that I felt lost some of the punch of the earlier chapters. The pacing is really great (Stoddard uses super short chapters to keep the speed up, which is something I did in my own novel). HIGHLY recommended.
