Read in November, 2009

a beautifully written book that absolutely lives up to the praise heaped upon it.

it starts off simple and innocent enough ("we trekked into the jungle carrying betty crocker cake mixes") and then slowly and steadily snowballs into 'heart of darkness' hell. fascinating to explore how much of hell is your own making, and how much is that which is made of the world all around you.
