A good friend recommended this book to me. I honestly think this is the best love story I have ever read. The love this father has for his son is so powerful, I wept throughout. Yes it is dark. But strangely beautiful.
I first discovered this book when I was 14. It touched me on many levels then. Now, having taught it many times over, my love for it hasn't waned. If anything, I appreciate its layers even more. A classic read that sings about love, courage and integrity.
*If you love a good spine-chilling mystery, or gripping psychological thriller, but won't go near horror novels because they make you lose sleep at night, this is the reading list for you. These 45 books are seriously spooky, but not out-and-out scary.
