This was a one sitting book for me. Much like Night by Elie Wiesel it was a book that if I put down I don't thing I could have picked back up. This book was horrifying and nauseating. We have a rape problem in this country and hearing how much the system fails victims is difficult, and it's something I already knew about. Krakauer is a great author, he does his research, he presents the story clearly, and is very good at explaining the climate and things that were going on around these events. Yeah this book was hard to read but it was worth reading.
