Deeply Disturbing

This book delivers a strangely enthralling and utterly disturbing read. Lionel Shriver very quickly pulls you into this masterpiece of fiction that is one of those books that is hard to explain. It tells the story of a Mothers recollections of raising her son that ends up on a mass murdering rampage.

But this is not what makes this book disturbing it is the interplay between the characters and what I can best describe as emotional manipulation that gets to you. If you have some lingering doubts about your little cherubs then avoid this book at all costs.

  1. This is one I just couldn't read. I borrowed it from a friend and read a couple of chapters...just too much for me.
