The Little Brother: A Novel

The Little Brother: A Novel - Victoria Patterson
2.5 Stars

A distubing and in places very graphic read.

While I found the writing and execution of the story was good and compelling I just couldn't get past the graphic content and felt it overshadowed the power of the story for me.

I found the fiirst half of the Novel unputdownable and really enjoyed the way the author set the scene for the actions that took place, I believe the story is
based on actural events and I really found the whole story sad and disturbing. I much perferred [b:Defending Jacob|11367726|Defending Jacob|William Landay|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1329612158s/11367726.jpg|16298550] but cant deny this writer sure can

Not a book I would recommend but readers need to judge for themselves by reading 5 and 4 star reviews.
