One of my ultime favorites.
Initially I couldn't put this book down because the idea behind it was so disturbingly intriguing. I mean, a family intentionally poisoning their unborn children so as to create their own freak show!!! I knew I definitely needed a break, though (and
h (and that I am probably susceptible to cult leaders) when I started to see LOGIC in this bizarre group's decisions. At one point I actually wanted to join up with them!!
If you can get past the distasteful theme, the book is captivating and very well written.
However, I did recommend it to a friend who hated it and thought it was too weird and gross. He has bad taste, I guess.
