I read this in one sitting - and while I gave it away, I found it a perfect marriage of technique and horror that moved me powerfully - then again, the material in and of itself must move if a creature have sympathy for other humans - it seems very hard not to hit home when depicting such brutal conditions - and at times the allusion to the Holocaust feels a bit stretched on the part of Moore - but as he works in a medium still struggling for recognition, to labor over much on a point may feel necessary to him. But I was profoundly disturbed by the sublime in that book - the sublime of inexpressible disquiet and horror that, nonetheless, marks the divine if anything can.
