Recommended for: everyone
Read from July 01 to 11, 2010 — I own a copy , read count: 2

This is not a review: A mind-bending read that I cannot recommend enough. Stunningly creative, brilliantly executed; bone-chilling, soul-touching. Pile on the superlatives.

Rob @W.: it's a pretty potent book. I recently got my copy back from a friend who claims he doesn't "read fiction like ever" and not only did he tear through but said that (1) it was the first fiction he had remembered enjoying in a long long time (maybe ever) and (2) he started pushing it on other people (e.g., friends of his, his mom, people he met on the plane...)
