I don't know why some people find this book ugly from all the other 'The Crow' books that have ever been published. I've read it once and it took me 5 weeks to finish reading it. This book is probably the best one I've read; it's dark, gothic, bloody (or morbid) and I like it. It shows a lot about the poverty side of Thailand, and it reflects on almost every country I know, especially the slums' side. It's a great book! I reccomend it. ^_^
