“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
"...it was like something cracked open inside of me, not unlike a watermelon, cool and soothing and sweet. I always thought insanity would be a dark bitter feeling, but it is drenching and delicious if you really roll around in it."
I love this.
Really I want to give this 3.5*, but that's just out of pure fatigue so I'm rounding up to 4. This was one of the first audiobooks I bought, which I started last September. That's right, September 2012. And I would listen to it 5 minute chunks, and it took me all year to get through half of it. I guess I'm just not into the audio book thing. So I finally bit the bullet and checked it out from the library and finished it in a couple of days. The audiobook was great, and had several different narrators, and it was really quite engaging, even for me. I've seen the movie as well, and the book is a little bit different, but they pretty much follow the same story line. It's a book I would definitely recommend to others, but was so done with after dealing with it for a year.
