Could Not Put It Down
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2018
I read this in one go. In some ways, this novel's negative reviews seem to be about thwarted expectations, which is one of the very things I enjoyed about it. It's a mysterious, trope-defying work that is, ultimately, as life-affirming as it is horrifying. A few reviewers have said it has no ending. I could not disagree more. I found the ending both surprising and profound, and, believe it or not, I enjoyed this book a hell of a lot more than I did The Road.
