Unless you want to spend a sleepless night, don't read any of these 4 books. They just kept me up two nights running, I was so enthralled.
This should have been classified among short stories. Nevertheless, they were all well written and most of them very poignant.
You'd have to be a real geek to like or even understand this novel.
An OK book. The only really well-drawn character is the boy Billy. And it is much, much too "preachy"...
