I tried but couldn't read more than a third of it. For me, it was the child-killing aspect. Just couldn't handle that aspect. My daughter says she totally understands why I couldn't read it, since I lost my son 6 years ago. I'm sure that's probably part of it but I still don't think I could enjoy the killing of children, even older children.
Just writing the words "killing children" gives me the creeps.
So thank you, Harmony 2000, for expressing your feeling also. I avoid talking about the book because I thought I was the only person in the world who didn't like it or want to read it.
