I think we expected me to love this book. I expected me to love this book, and I did like it, but it was a bit too disturbing even for me.
This was an extremely imaginative story, and the writing set the mood and the tone very well. What I didn't like about the book, was the unnecessary animal cruelty (and general cruelty to be honest). I can handle a LOT in my books. It's not in my nature to be particularly bothered by something like this in a book, so you know if I'm disturbed by it, it's got to be pretty bad.
If you can get past that aspect of it, have at it, but I wouldn't recommend this to many people. ”
