You will never read a more disturbing book. Well written, even lyrical, but some of the images will be burned into your head and you might wish they were not. None-the-less, I have recommended this book many times.

This is one of my all time favorite books. I have read it several times, and find the main character moving and infuriating at the same time. There is another translation also worth reading if you come across it.
