really liked it

I absolutely love this book. It's harsh language shows "a" (I don't want to generalize or make a claim about its truth status) brutality and bestiality of life in very vivid pictures. Crane manages to do this without sounding moralizing and I especially love his short sarcastic remarks. For me the greatness of it lies not in the story or in the way the story expectably ends, but in the way this story is presented. This book has a great force.
