I am so torn in saying how fabulous this story is, given the events are so horrendous. There is really no other way for me to describe it. The writing is fantastic. I was riveted from the start, hanging on every detail, even though many made me cringe.
I absolutely love when a book totally engages my mind and feelings and leaves me slightly drained at the end. The Brig is definitely on that list. I did not want to put this down once I started, couldn't wait to get to the end, but was sad it was over when I got there. I wanted to see so much more of the story and will definitely be taking a closer look at Mason's other work.
