Review of 'The bone tree' on 'Goodreads'

The writing is very good, but I'm completely exhausted after reading The Bone Tree. It's borderline misery-porn.

So much hatred, misogyny, sadism, rape, death, and more JFK assassination faux history than you can shake a stick at. It's all so bleak and terrible, not to mention depressing.
