This book is very long and once you get past the beginning, it becomes very interesting. It is about twin brothers, one who is mentally disturbed and the other who just struggles with life trying to cope with his brother's problems. It leads you through a winding road of psychological hardship on both men and how one brother uses his other brother's illness to help himself.

This is a great read. If you have ever had to deal with loss and redemption (some day you will) this is a gratifying sage to id with. Its a large book but keeps you interested and turning one more page before you lay it down.

One of my all time favorite books. Starts out kind of slow, but if you hang in there, you will be very pleased. It is an epic tale, filled with emotion, inspiration, heartbreak...all the elements you could ever want in a book.

Incredible book! It has a lot of vulgar language that bothered me, but the story was so awesome that I could look over it. This book is a journey through one man's life as he confronts his demons and overcomes them while caring for his mentally ill twin brother and abusive stepfather. Very profound. When I finished the book I had to just sit for a minute and think, "Wow."
