really liked it
bookshelves: booker-books, orange-prize
Read in April, 2011

The book was too disturbing for me to continue. Knowing that this is based on the Josef Fritzl case didn't help either. The fact that it is narrated by a 5 year old makes the story even more harrowing. I have no doubts that this is brilliant work, but it's not enough to make me keep reading. The stars are just based on what little I have read (one third of the book).

I am never going to read this book!

Michele Well, I read the book. I'm stronger than I think I am. Still, it was really disturbing and I'm not sure it was a good idea to read it all.
