    This is a tough book to read, not a joyful book by any means Some parts were depressing, lots of death and lots of talk of death But even with all that, it was an excellent book It s the kind of book that makes you say wow at the end, while your mind is kind of spinning, trying to process all you just read I like books like that, that make you feel something while reading, and stil...
