I loved that book. it was so hard to read because it was so well written. You could identify almost perfectly with each character and their travails became your own as you read along.

Heartbreaking.

Great story.

I wonder how accurate. Before the book there is an intro (a poem?) saying that, as bad as things seem in the book, in reality they were unimaginably worse. Hard to believe but possible.
