A very disturbing review and book, Farah! I understand that it certainly may be worth the read but by someone stronger and less emotional than I. Simply reading your review made me anxious!
I admire your tenacity to see it through and to find redeemable aspects of the story. I doubt I could have done the same.
Thank you for this review. We often choose to review books we like or were informative but rarely will we delve into a critique of a book that makes us uncomfortable. It’s easier to brush it aside. I appreciate your willingness to take on a difficult and unsettling book.
