One of my favorite books ever. If you enjoyed Frankenstein, you would enjoy this. It's dark,unusual,unsettling and beautifully written. It was one of Kurt Cobain's favorite books. Read morePublished 26 days ago by Mary Cavano

I did not like it at all. All the good reviews are very strange to me.
Don't spend money on this awful book.
