really liked it
Read in November, 2008

This is a dark and disturbing book - an amazing glimpse into pure grief and despair, all the more difficult knowing that Petterson lived this grief. That said, as I came towards the end of the book, I found myself slowing down so it wouldn't end. Once again, I find Petterson's writing some of the best that I've come across in quite some time.
