    • Hi Care, Yes, the three word reviews is my attempt to make it easy for anyone to review a book, although I am told by many that it is not so easy! Thanks for stopping by!

      • I am going to propose this to our club.
        I also meant to say that I love the omelet rating system.

  8. Main characters in this novel proved that in order to survive, we must act both selflessly as well as selfishly. I saw inner conflict as a role that created In-humane behaviors and unthinkable acts of torture. I believe there is a tremendous effect of childhood abandonment which is portrayed by Otto in this story.
