I was captivated from the first paragraphs by the unusual method of telling the tale and by the characters of Ben and Adam. Ben's race against time kept me on the edge of my seat.
Adam barely made it to twenty blanking seven. Call that old? The child only reached fifteen - and that's days we're talking about here, not years, not months, not even measly weeks. Fifteen, pathetic, blameless days. When and if I'm ever granted the Beatific Vision ... I'm going to stare It straight on and say ... How DARED YOU, God? How dared You create a world where such things happen?
