I couldn't finish this book. It was gory and gruesome. Horrid pictures and scenes came into my head with every sentence. The writing was too realistic, which I couldn't handle. My mother was the one who convinced me to stop reading it. She said, "If it will give you nightmares, don't read it. You don't want a book that does that to you, do you?" No, I don't. That why at page 30, I set it down.
Truth be told, I may read it someday when I'm not as easily frightened. But for now, it will sit on the shelf, mocking me for my cowardice.
