5.0 out of 5 stars A literary explosion in colour and words, 14 Aug. 2002
I'm a 21 year old dyslexic, and reading is always very hard, but very rewarding. I havent read many books for graduate of my age, but in the few i have choosen to read, none beat this. Books like this make me so happy, that i am at least able to try and read. It blows your mind with tales of death and survival. intricate stories of struggle and back breaking work. however it seems to have with its words, the ability to make a sad man laugh, and the dirty think that they are clean. (read it you'll understand.)
Each page turned is like another step closer to making a real friend out of the narrator. by the end of the book you know him, what he's about to say, and he says it so well. A book full of discriptions and imagery, literally and pictorally.
A book that revived my faith in reading for a past time.
