Rating: 4 /5
Dark and gruesome
The book has to be the most uncomfortable book i have read in my entire life. With this book, i had no idea what to do, whether to scream at the author for bringing a plot that made me want to scrub myself with burning coal or to actually build a shrine for the author and singing odes on his ability to evoke such huge strong emotions and response towards his work
The book is definitely not for the weak hearts. In fact I believe that this book is not meant for any person in general (ok that was worse thing to say about a book) but as you move with the book, you tend to increase your adaptive skills for the book because what the book deals with is highly dark, haunting and uncomfortable to the core and in spite of all that you can’t shrug off from the sense and gruesomeness that the book brings to light.
It is very hard to actually cope with the harsh topic that the book deals with and the author also doesn’t try to make it simple or less harsher. He deals with it as serious and realistic as the theme demands and the highly sensitive themes just jostles you, makes you uncomfortable but at the same time proves his ability to make it realistic and tap on to your emotions so tangibly
The book is very harsh , dark and highly volatile. so keep that in mind that the book is not for everyone as it is could be too much for some to handle with every aspect of it touching upon horrific elements.
