of another writer with pure dreadful power possessed by Robert Cormier The Rag and Bone Shop is not only a no brainer five star book for me it is clearly one of the greatest books I have ever experienced I did not know that writing could be this stunningly powerful and even that is an understatement In my opinion every person alive should read this book It is an absolute uneuivocal life changer in the truest sense of the word I m still in shock I m trying very hard not to like this book I know that sounds prejudiced but at least I m honest In fact I decided after being introduced to Robert Cormier s style that I would not like this book I have always been a fan of happy endings Let me clarify by happy endings I don t m Look Jason I am only stating what they think I am trying to show ou the seriousness of Magic in the North your situation You are their prime suspect They have evidence againstou No one else fits the profile A seven Imagining Gay Paradise year old girl has been murdered and the police are convinced her killer was the last person to see her alive a twelveear old boy Now a hot shot detective has been called in to try and coax a confession from hot shot detective has been called in to try and coax a confession from boy But will he cross a line to get the desired resultsThis was an unsettling read The subject matter is dark and though none of the characters are likable the reader does feel a certain sympathy toward the König der Welten 1 young suspect His interrogator s techniues so effective when used on adults seem cruel and conniving when employed on a child I m also not convinced any testimony coerced from a minor without the presence of a parent would be admissible in court Anyway it s a short tense read with a shocker ending My rating is not higher because I felt a bit manipulated by the whole experience butou may enjoy it than I didIt does leave ou wondering who is really the guilty party here.
