Thoroughly human, the inability of a person to deal with something he thinks just not right, or the biggest disappointment of his life. Ultimately shocking, but in a very gripping way. Leaves you stunned.
This is a very good psychological drama that explores themes of identity, expectations, parental love and relationships. There are some quite unusual twists and turns, and the ending really took me by surprise. It started slowly, but as it progressed I could barely put it down. Certainly not what I expected from the opening pages of the story.
