A book that was an emotional whirl-wind. As it started out, I was horrified. Every time a hit was delivered, every time a punishment was recieved, I felt myself flinch. When the stench of his clothes was described, I felt myself gag. I wondered, How could anyone do this? As the book grew on, and things got worse and worse, at times I wanted to cry. A book about things so horrible and undescribable, yet written so well. This book opened my eyes to the types of horrors this world holds.
