Read this book because Anda Kent reviewed it and it just sounded really interesting. Obv its about vampires, but I think it was a really interesting take on the vampire and vampire literature. I agree that it's one of those books that has some HIGHLY disturbing subject matters in it, but I think it still has a lot to dig at.

I think that as much as my heart bleeds for Oskar, Eli is my absolute favorite character and favorite vampire in literature as far as I have read. I think there are so many ways to read and make sense of this novel- as a coming of age story, about self discovery, about finding your people, about the different ways that families are made, what makes a person a monster...its all in there.

I also wish that we got more of what Eli's story was, but then again, it's so horrifying and themes and things that happened to him when he went from child to vampire is so painful to read that I see why we get so little.

Overall, this is a hard book to read and I am still trying to make sense of it, but if you're okay with difficult literature and disturbing subject matter that still seems to have larger messages and important information under the surface, you may want to consider this one.
