Great Story

by screwdskull on Mar 7, 2008

This book delves deeply into the psyche of its characters and makes the reader reflect on their own passions and hates, virtues and vices and about what matters in this short life. It has sparse speech, but the characters monologue their innermost secrets and desires, proving itself irresistable and appealing to our human interest in other humans. Plus it's a great story.
