want to read the most depressing book ever? its an award winner! [for literary works ..not happy-mood-killingness] click cover for link.
two complete misfits, alice and mattia, have unbearably traumatic childhoods. dysfunctional parents and cruel schoolmates add to their unfortunate neurosis. in a romeo + julietesque tragedy, they seem destined for solitude [hence the title] and future failures.
will they ever get their shit together? um.. i didnt deem it "most depressing book ever" for no reason. another book i read recently was not quite as depressing... but its no disney classic either.
i cant say that i totally understand the end of the book.. but damn its bleak.
