I honestly don't know how to review this. It is hard to read, sometimes painful even, beautiful on nearly every page, shocking and wonderful too. I was completely unprepared for the depth of this book. I can't say I loved reading it, yet I can't possibly consider giving it less than five stars. It's a bit like Watchmen for me. I know it's a truly great book, but that doesn't mean it's simple to read. The interwoven stories, the threads about religion, script, love and pain create something stunning.
