I very much enjoyed this book, not just for its gritty but real story but for its art--it is sparely written, every word has meaning and purpose, and there is not an ounce of verbiage or detail that is not germane to the story. Having come to read it a bit late in its lifespan--it is already, at April, 08, a movie adaptation--I was not sure it would hold up to the buzz about it or its popular reputation, but it does. I reccomend this book highly.
