    A fascinating book

    Russell Bank's writing draws you in and keeps you there from the beginning. This story is fascinating and gives the reader a glimpse into a generation of activists and the underground as well as a look at the Liberian struggles, all set around a compelling and complex person in the form of 'Hannah'. Great characters and great story.

    The writing is sublime (as usual); the story and character deeply disturbing and guaranteed to make you fall in love.

    A wonderful, complex, frightening, unforgettable book. Surely not for everyone, nor "just for fun" (though it Is compelling-compelling...) But, everyone Ought to read this book, and get whatever they may from it--- it is so rich. Again, as usual, for Banks. However, this is darker--- even than the Sweet Hereafter, in that it is very... viscerally disturbing; that is, by comparison The Sweet Hereafter is devastating, but comprehensible to Western/US minds.
    There is something at once foreign and so-close-to-home about the Darling--- it is terrifying, and, I feel, truly art.

    A very good read

    I am going to Liberia to work shortly. Even though the book is fiction, I found the historical events that are incorporated in this book to be very illuminating. I enjoyed reading this book.
