For this to be a 4 or 5 star experience, it would have had to be a different story. It was dreary, depressing, endlessly gruesome, and just plain awful.
There was unending pain and misery in this story. There were no characters to root for. Everyone was either awful, crazy, or abused and/or all of the above. As the book progressed, the story rambled more and more until I just wanted to be finished so I could stop reading this horrible book.
Although he did an admirable job with the material, I have to say that none of them were my favorite.
All of them.
I read this for my book club and when we met to discuss it, everyone in the group really could not stand this book. It probably generated the most conversation of any book we have discussed and that's the only good thing I can say about it.
