A very gruesome almost depraved book, the beginning had me wondering if I could continue, and I wouldn't want my mother reading this, nor some people knowing I have read this. However, it was a good book. The plotting was excellent, the two main female characters kicked ass, each in their own way. Writing was quite baroque at times, the author drawing a vivid image of guts and gore that at least twice made me giggle with the absurdity of words used to describe the violence, or the characters eyes, who often had very descriptive colors. Would have preferred a different ending but it did not spoil the book.
