By Walter Lovelace on June 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
Sorrow so deap that it hurts to read about. Sorrow so unbearable that it must have been almost impossible to write about. Sorrow that comes from something that cannot be explained, or discussed, or forgotten or forgiven. Therefore guilt is the only emotion available. A dark and frightning story that one wishes had a happy ending. No such luck! Sorrow has no neat ending.

Format: Paperback
This book is a staggering portrait of depression, always painful and sometimes frightening to read, but compelling at every page. I also caught myself being angry at the author for ending his own life despite having such talent. I so much wish he would have kept writing. The first half of the novel is written in a realist style; the second becomes more dreamy, fairytale-like. A recurring motif is a house where one goes to meet one's deepest fears. This image has had such an impact on me that dreamt of a desolate village where that house was to be found. Overall, the book haunts you for days after you finish it. The only detail I didn't quite like is the twist at the end (but it is so subtle that it almost leaves the choice to the reader whether to decipher it or not). I recommend it highly.
