It is a terrible story, that is being told. Having said that, I must add, that this book, this short novel, was way too graphic for me.
I have told you before that I have quite a vivid imagination and the words I read were, like usally, put into a movie straight away.
It got that bad, that I was VERY happy when the book had no more pages! ( )
