My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book has been taking the book reading world by storm over the last 10 months or so. You see people reading it everywhere. I struck up a conversation on an airplane with a lady who was reading it just last month. Book clubs are reading it, and my personal copy is making the rounds in my neighborhood. Because it is so popular, it is a great book for connecting with others.
I was hooked once I started reading. It is dark and disturbing so, to be honest, I kind of wanted to read it quickly. It's not a place I really like to dwell. The characters are totally insane, so that just kind of boggled my mind. But I have to admit, I found the story pretty compelling.
Definitely rated R for language and content.
