It hurts how everyone has to adapt into this new style to get by and live. Its a very dark book I feel and a must read to really appreciate things we have. Even writing this review."

    "Not since the Color Purple have I found a book that resonates so strongly with me. Though the title is a bit weird, the book itself is wonderful. I was particularly interested in the seduction of the teacher, because as a teacher myself, I often think thoughts along that same path."
