really liked it
Read from May 10 to 13, 2012

a very raw account of one persons life and all the things that could befall them at the hands of men in a strange country where they have no defences.
Its not a comfortable read, some of the descriptions are very detailed, but its a vivid picture painted, and helps with the book.
I felt it was at its strongest for first 3/4 of book, before too many people were introduced and the story came about revenge... I liked the flashback stories to different parts of Hanna's life so we could see how we had got to who and where she was.

very good.
