Staff Reviews

Ok, admittedly I was a little late to the party on this one. My good friend Aaron always talked about this book, though, so I finally read it. This story has been haunting me ever since I finished it. I know the word "haunting" might have a negative connotation. However, I'd like to make it clear that although this book takes your heart and proceeds to continuously stomp on it throughout the entire tale, you'll find a most intriguing and terrifying exploration of humanity within these pages. You'll be disturbed, you'll probably cry, but you'll also come away from it with a lingering feeling of hope that the protagonists manage to keep aflame. 



At once brutal and tender, despairing and rashly hopeful, spare of language and profoundly moving, this work is a fierce and haunting meditation on the tenuous divide between civilization and savagery, and the essential, sometimes terrifying power of filial love.
