We need to talk about Kevin

I have just finished the most amazing and disturbing book.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We Need to Talk About Kevin is a 2003 novel by Lionel Shriver, concerning a fictional school massacre. It is written from the perspective of the killer's mother, Eva Khatchadourian, and documents her attempt to come to terms with her son Kevin and the murders he committed. Although told in the first person as a series of letters from Eva to her husband, the novel's structure also strongly resembles that of a thriller. The novel, Shriver's seventh, won the 2005 Orange Prize, a UK-based prize for female authors of any nationality writing in English.

It has twists and turns and is SO powerful.....
I really recommend it BUT, think hard whether or not you want to put yourself through it because it will stay with you for a LOOOOOOOOOOOOONNG time
