“Simply amazing book! It makes you think. The characters in the story are very realistic. They are not perfect and they don’t know all the right answers, but they still inspire with their will to learn on their own mistakes and amazing ability to survive by adapting to the surrounding.
I like that the story is told by five year old boy. He is very young and don’t know much about the world and how it works, so everything he is saying is more like a description of what’s going on without the judgment. It gives you an opportunity to realize on your own just how horrible the situation is, and absolutely terrify you at how natural it is for the little boy.
I would defiantly recommend this book to anybody. This is one of those stories that touches you and engages you no matter what kind of books you like to read.
