A 160 page novel written by Francesca Lia Block. Involves incest, love, siblings, and suicide.
I just finished reading 'Wasteland'. It was actually really depressing in a sense. Poetically depressing. A lot of emotion coursed through those words on these pages, giving you an almost inside depth into these characters minds...at least for me anyway. Despite the short length (took me about half an hour to read), the story itself makes up for it. I can see the reason why so many summaries written about this book say its aimed for more sophisticated readers. With the authors writing style, and with the plot as well, which deals with a sensitive subject, incest, it makes the reason quite evident already. Overall, I just like the book, the idea, everything. I don't like reviews that reveals the whole plot...so, I just recommended you to read this book if you like stories with depth, and raw emotion.
