I was first in doubt if I really liked it, but as I continued reading, the book had me completely hooked. This novel is very deceiving and rather unexpected. Probably my initial reluctance was because the book was not what I expected, in fact it turns out I am talking about this book with everyone I meet so my impression of it really changed over time and it is still lingering in me after it’s finished.
The story works on different time levels and jumps between 2006 and 1968. It’s a story about revenge and contains several bestial murders, it starts out with an extremely painful bullying scene that supposedly is self experienced by the author…
It is hard to write to much about the plot without revealing things that should be discovered by the reader, but I can say it is very cruel and not for the sensitive reader.
