I put this in my "books I'd like to read but never will" shelf because I started reading this and couldn't finish. The language was a bit too vulgar in parts, unnecessarily so, and the violence was a bit graphic. I tried to keep going, but fear of something more evil made me put the book down. I wish I could have liked it enough to finish, but the story wasn't good enough to get me through its nastiness.

Kathryn It was a very graphic book--and I don't mean there were lots of pictures.
