I,like many others, bought this book on the strength of the reviews. I heard the author interviewed and the premise sounded promising. Unfortunately the book did not work for me. I did not buy into the the five year old's perspective. Far too many inconsistentcies in how his perception was presented. Further, I didn't find the reactions of either the boy or the mother believable, there was little or no dramatic tension. The escape and the suicide attempt both left me flat. I won't comment on the breast feeding because I've seen that many others have already. In the end I gave up with only about 20 pages to go. Why? Because I found that I didn't really care what happened I just wanted to be done. Wish it could have lived up to the hype but not even close.

This book was cleverly written, I understand how some readers thought it a good book to read, but I did not like the subject matter and and found it easy to put down.

It's a great book and smoothly written... but not for everyone. I am claustrophobic and could not handle the constant feeling that as the little boy grew, the walls were closing in. It is one of the few books I have not finished reading, but I passed it to someone who is enthusiastic to read it... I hope others will still read it.
