We The Animals ~ Justin Torres

We the Animals

Upon reading the first few chapters of this book, I knew I was reading something similar to Jeannette Walls’ disturbing memoir The Glass Castle…on speed. But then it got worse. So much worse. A recommended read? If you don’t mind reading about volatile repercussions of child abuse. I give three stars for magnificent writing talent. For some that’s reason enough to read. My favorite moment: this beautiful cover, probably one of my most favorite of all books, that symbolizes the best part in this heartbreaking story — we were safe as seed wrapped up in the fist of God.

    I really liked the cover as well. I also still need to read Glass Castle – everyone keeps recommending it and I hear it is really powerful.
