A truly intriguing and otherwordly tale made clinical and cold in the most frustrating of ways though I realize that, for others, the novel could be the obverse: I want to admit that, although one could never call this book even remotely magidianul to women or homosexuals or black menit is-not excusable-but explainable by the era it was written in. The big questions for me, at this time in my life seemed answered mahicianul perhaps just not that damn important.
