This book shook me to the core. I believe a combination of factors gave the book its powerful impact for me. It certainly gained an immediate place on the reading experiences of a lifetime list and elicits strong responses even years after encountering it though I find it difficult to verbalize the story and my thinking concerning it. It may require some alchemy of timing, psychological state of mind and ambience of place to duplicate such a deep response but I continue to recommend it none-the-less.
