really liked it
Read in January, 2012

My first thought was this is torture porn at its finest, but then I kept thinking about it more. Reminded me of the first Saw movie, so incredibly disturbing yet impossible to disengage from. I read this book in more or less one sitting, because I felt compelled to find out what happens. The great thing about it is that the writer really made us care so that the reader can get really involved with the story and not just sorta go through it in shock and disgust. Underneath the blood and gore and viscera, there is a story about losing one's innocence upon discovering the cruel randomness and unfairness of life. It's definitely not for the squeamish or faint of heart (you gotta have pretty high tolerance for horrific to read this book), but I highly recommend it to all horror fans.
