heartbreaking. i saw the movie first and then realized there was a novel. i really dug the way it was written. very intense but beautiful and hard and moving. and i appreciate just that it is a subject not often written of, and that there was no simplification of it. the novel i felt perfectly explored the complexities of child abuse, how it can affect individuals in various different ways thruout their lives.
