review 1: This is the second book I've read by Conlon and this is the second book I've loved by Conlon. I don't know if I have read a story that simultaneously captures the worst of humanity and the beauty of it so clearly. The three main characters are so rich and complex. Conlon seems to have a knack for writing things to make you squirm with discomfort while wanting the best for his characters who've don't terrible things. We all make mistakes and how long should we suffer for them? That what I thought about after I finished reading this book. I will continue to read Conlon.
review 2: There are certain books that you read during your lifetime that carry a lot of weight to it that you remember those moments when you are reading it for the rest of your life. There are
... morealso certain books that move you more than most others. This was one of the books for me. I would dare say that this is near perfect if it isn't. For a book that packs in at only 220 pages this one feels like it is longer, but in a good way. I had to take my time with it, not because of lack of interest but because I felt the need to cherish that exciting and homelike feel that the characters and setting played upon my imagination. By the middle of the book, these three characters had felt like old friends. It fits into the suspense genere and a little on the horror side, but not with blood and gore but with the surreal aspect of a past haunting them. less

Intimate, powerful, emotionally compelling, startlingly unconventional. I will read this again.
In a year full of GREAT debut novels, this is easily one of the best. Don't miss it.
