I heard of this book from a book club at my church and I quite enjoyed it, though enjoying the subject matter is whole another story. It’s always amazing to read about how far the dark side of human beings can go and though this is a novel, the truth of matter is that I have no doubt that this exact thing happens in Russia as well as many countries of the world. Indeed sad and I’m grateful that we have hope in God and that this kind of evil will end one day.
