's review

it was amazing

Pitts has outdone himself once again. It’s hard to come up with the words. This novel is beyond epic in scope. At times so brutal that you may feel you can’t keep reading or risk surrendering your own last thing. But you must read this book. Every single word. It is a masterpiece. It pulls no punches. It requires that you confront the worst horrors our world and our lack of humanity have to offer. And yet somehow, as always, Pitts ultimately delivers hope and a deeper understanding of humans, woven together in all our bests and worsts, our daily struggles and triumphs, our ability to survive the almost unimaginable.
