This book is very captivating and very true. Crude to the point it hurts to think about it, yet still I didn't enjoy it as much as I'd like.
Some of the dialogues were strange (not in a good way, but in the way I couldn't tell who was saying what).
The ending was superb, except for the final two pages or so, when the other character came about. For me, that part was unecessary and the book would've won more if it was left without that, leaving it to the reader's imagintation a little more.

Still I enjoyed reading it a lot, but I can't help but say that I was hoping for a little more.
