I have had this book
on my list for a long time
and have finally read it.
I am not going to lie.
It was not a quick read.
It was not an easy read.
It was sad and scary and infuriating
and, at times, incomprehensible
that such things are really going on
in this world
in this day...
But it was also inspiring
and interesting and poignant.
It was interesting to see the parallels
drawn between fiction and life,
life as fiction....wishing fiction to be life...
as helpless as I felt reading it,
I also felt amazed by the author's tenacity
It wasn't quick
and it wasn't easy
it should be read.
