I had put this book in my to-read list 8 years ago and I'm sorry I didn't get to it earlier. It was seeing the movie based on the book (which is excellent in its own right) that finally pushed me to read it. It is a story that touches on several debatable topics: nature v. nurture, modern culture's violence, being too well off, etc. The vignettes drawn by the letters that form the book's narration will haunt you long after the book is over. An absolute triumph of a book.
