Dec 10, 08

bookshelves: fantasy-scifi
Read in December, 2008

Dark and desolate, and at times depressing, alarming, or both, but always gripping. It's difficult not to keep turning pages and finishing in a single sitting. The story is compelling, the style cleverly fitting, and the feeling evocative and almost raw in its mixture of urgency, fear/love, and tenderness. A father/son love story in the most unimaginable context.
