I really enjoyed this book. An intelligent exploration of a damaged mind. Will be looking forward to part 2. Highly recommended.
This book is an amazing insight into the mind of a young boy who has no control over the events that then make him a man. How Hugo responds is in part due to the way he was treated and although not an excuse for the action he takes against those he believes are guilty, it is the basis of understanding why he does this. I truly enjoyed this book and cannot wait until Volume 2 is released and we find out how life treats Hugo, Eric, Fathers Paul and Hal as Hugo gets older.

Really enjoyed reading the book from this new author. Easy to read and never dull. Has been a long time since I had a book that I didn't want to end. Can't wait for a follow up. Feel the story could be serialised for TV. Unsettling at times but true to life.
