Still not OK after reading this
on 30 April 2017
I can understand some of the criticisms levelled against the book by earlier reviews, so before continuing i should make a couple of things clear about it.
1. Yes, there is a lot of intense sex and violence, including pedophilia, incest and rape. This book does not hold back on any of these topics and it definitely a disturbing read if you have any reservations regarding gratuitous sex and violence.
2. It is a slow burn, its over 700 pages long and it's pretty dense with information. Including a lot of information on rituals, naming conventions, languages, geography and economics. So if you're not a fan of that, this isnt for you.
3. If you're still sold on this book after reading that, this is by far one of the best books i have ever read and it's well worth reading through. It's more than worth the price you're getting it for, and it deserves wider readership. If they have the stomach for it.
