I was expecting an interesting read, but I wasn't prepared for the style of this book. Its almost as if the author is writing the book, researching further and considering and re-considering it, even as we are reading it.
I don't know if some people may find that slightly off-putting, but I found it a kind of (sometimes comical) respite from what is an intense and heavy story - heavy may not be the right word - as it is a story of courage, but when looking at the villain/s it is heavy and disturbing, the nature of the 'blond beast'.
Anyway, I found it a fascinating book, not only the story, but the way Binet has written. He has paid an excellent tribute.
