This is one of the most disturbing books I have ever read. It has incest, pedophilia, social violence, you name it.
Why I read this? Well, in my college days, I was on a long train journey and this was the only book available at the smallest bookstore in the world at a train station (I didn't catch the name)which was not written by a Crichton, a Grisham or an Archer.
Not bad but a very grim tale. The end will break your heart. It still pains me from time to time whenever I think about that last page. Some stories just stays with you.
