really liked it
Read in April, 2010

Hard to say I liked this book. I mean when I was reading it, it was hard to put down. It was also hard to pick up. I didn't want anything worse to happen to the father and son. I liked the style of the writing, but I was constantly anxious ... so obviously it was good writing. The book actually made me look at my relationships with my wife and kids and think ... a part from the burnt, dead planet angle ... we too are walking on our own road through life and, while we don't always express it, we rely on each other in a similar way. When I finished it, I immediately set out to find a book with a lighter tone. Too many dark stories in a row for me.
