it was amazing
Read in July, 2010

** spoiler alert ** This book was riveting, I couldn't put it down and ended up finishing it in just a few days. However, I will never read another one of Larson's books. I found the graphic sexual perversion completely disturbing. I was aware that there was a horrific rape scene, so I was able to anticipate that and skip it (without missing the ending, which will make sense to those of you who read it). Despite missing the most detailed "encounter" in the story, the entire book is laced with sexual perversion and I found that to be very distasteful. Not to mention that overall the entire storyline is disturbing and I couldn't sleep well for several nights thereafter. All this being said, the author clearly evoked a strong response from me, so in that sense, it was a terrifically successful novel.
