This is the first thing I have read by Braunbeck, and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. This sat on my wishlist forever, and I finally broke down and bought it because it was about to go out of print. I honestly expected the book to be sensationalistic trash given its topic, but to the author's credit he managed to tell the story in as sensitive a way as one possibley could. I am super impressed that he managed to pull that off. It was a fast paced and engaging read. My only real complaint is that I found the narrators ruminations on the power puff girls to be really distracting and out of place. Other than that, it was a good book. I daresay the finest book I've ever seen on the theme of mutilatization and sexual torture of children. How's that for an endorsement?
