Yes. It fascinated me, plus it's well written and compelling. When I wasn't reading it, I was thinking about it and wanting to read it. It's a different type of book and genre than I'm accustomed to, but it's an interesting read all the same. I want to recommend others read it.

I'm nervous for you to spend time with it, particularly, as you are the father of two young girls. You may start to ask yourself questions and imagine yourself in a terrible position. All that aside, however, it's also a shocking examination of a culture and its legal system.
