Ummm. The only positive comment I honestly can make about this book is that it was unique, and I was originally intrigued. Ultimately though, the book was depressing and explored many topics with a dark filter, and I most certainly would not recommend it for children. Knowing the actual plot line beforehand would have saved me, because I would not have picked it up had I known. Also, I didn't connect the author with another book I didn't like until I sat down to write this. Obviously he's just not for me, but others love and rave about his writing.
