I had bought this book some time ago, and forgotten what it was about, so I started it without any pre-expectations. Oh my gosh. It is one of the most riveting books I've ever experienced. Written in the voice of a five-year-old boy who has been raised by his captive mother in total isolation, it is both harrowing and sweet, if it's possible to be both at the same time. I totally fell in love with the little boy, and empathized with his mother. I had a few issues with the coy way the author treated some aspects of the story, but they are minor. An excellent read, and highly recommended.
