This is a book that every adult and teen should read. It is powerful, raw, beautiful, and thought provoking. It is different from any other book I have read. The entire book takes place in less than a day and most of it takes place within a minute ride on an elevator. It is written in prose and there are limited words per page. The author is brilliant in his judicious use of words, as well as his choice of language and orientation on the page. I believe readers will think about this book for a long time after reading.
