It's tough to recommend books from this author, not because they are bad, but because they are full of a lot of pain, gore, and disturbing situations. Like with the first book of this series I can't really say that I loved this book, yet I got to the point where I just couldn't put it down. At first I was turned off by what I believed a change in the writing style that was just too maddening at times. Thankfully it delved back into familiar territory after moving past the attempt on Hitler's life and I breezed through the rest of the book. Zebulon is developed even further in this volume and I was greatly moved by some of his trials and tribulations (especially with his time spent in the suburbs). There is some rather breathtaking writing in this book and I wished that I had my own copy so I could highlight my favorite bits. I totally got the impact of Zebulon's experiences and relationships on his psyche and felt a fondness for this faulted character who really is the antagonist of his own tale in many ways. I know this book (and the one before it) won't be for everyone, but I'm very glad I stuck with it to the end. I encourage anyone interested to not be put off by the horrible things described and to see the beauty of this story in all its forms.
