“The plot, characters, everything was absolutely amazing.”

“Don’t you just love a book that you think about weeks after you finished?”

“Beware – there will be sleepless nights because you can’t put it down..  and then it will haunt you afterwards…”

“This book troubled me. Hours after I’ve finished it, I’m still thinking about it. There are no easy answers in this book. Michael was deeply sympathetic character, but his actions were like watching a train-wreck.”

“I freely admit that while reading about the first phases of Michael’s reeducation, I had some very self-righteous and indignant thoughts.”

“… very original and fascinating.. I did not see the ending coming. Oh my it was amazing!”

“This is by far my new Favorite book…This is one I would gladly read again and again…”

“It has been several days since I put it down, but the story comes back to me frequently. I feel like something is sitting on my consciousness.”
