The book is heartbreaking.
And I do recognize the talent, the cleverness (aka genius) of the style of writing. I really did feel like I was in the head of this 24 year old “kid” who was orphaned and is trying to raise his 7 year old brother.
Which is why I stopped reading the book. Being inside this young man’s head was a totally dizzying experience, one I actually felt too old for.
The book deserves to be read. But I couldn’t deal with it.
