120 pages dedicated to the idea of a self fulfilling prophecy and one that remained incredibly open ended. With an entire society baring down on a person, telling them they are going to go insane at some point, when they actual lapse into an emotional state where they become mentally usntable, you have to wonder: were they right or did they make themselves right? The books et the entire thing up beautifully, slowly dredging on towards the end with only the faintest glimmer of hope hitting the radar occasionally.
...and thats about all I have to say. An extremely simple but ultimately rewarding piece of literature. Now, onwards!
