An incredible and unbelievable story that is unique and that's what kept me turning the pages. It is well deserved to be a classic, a film and to be generally held in high regard. I would recommend reading this book.

The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath. I know this one is supposedly very depressing and dark. I have read it three times now and I find it beautiful.
