Has anyone read this book? I just finshed it, its such hard going, i felt physically sick half the time. possibly the worst bit is understanding the narrator's frame of mind.
I found it on our bookshelf at home, apparantly its banned now though. urgh
*Shudders*
i do like a book which affects me in some way or form....

I looked at some of the reviews for this book. One reader states:
Quote:
"it forces the reader's mind to think in a sick and grotesque way"

I now know enough about this book to be comfortable with my decision to never read it.
I love a quote I just recently saw:
Quote:
"Read the best books first... or you may not have a chance to read them at all." — Henry David Thoreau

Ah, but as weird as it was, im realy glad i read it. its an incredible literary feat. and really interesting.
i dunno mayb im just sick n twisted :D , but as hard as i found it to read, i enjoyed it. its like why people read grotesque thrillers, all the blood and guts. i think.

Shes an incredible authour in my opinion. and its an interesting interpretation of that kind of mind...

never read, or even heard about, it. what's it about? without giving away anything.

Its not one of those that has exciting twists etc.
You've probably never heard of it because i think its been banned. ummm its narrated by a peadophile. ive blatently spelt that wrong....
anyway he's writing to this nineteen year old whos in love/lust with a thirteen year old.
The authors done a huge amount of research, i suppose its her interpretation of his mindset. I think its all fictional, so she hasn't based it upn anyone in particular.
One thing that i found interesting was the suggestion that some peados think what the others do is sick, but what they do is normal. say like the diff. between little boys and little girls.
urgh its very queasy reading. sickening.
