    Kindle Hannah Kent Ì Burial Rites PDF ↠ Ì burial ebok, rites pdf, Burial Rites EpubI cannot write a review that can do this book justice This is what goes through my head I am so happy I give few books five stars because then when I run into a book this good my five star rating means something You need a strong stomach for this book I have warned you Once you start you will not be able to read or do anything else There is NO humor in this book I always need humor except NOT here Don't ask me why I just didn't need it I was riveted from start to finish I needed to understand the relationships that lie at the core of what happened I was so focused on understanding the why I didn't have any need for humor Humor simply doesn't belong in this book This is Nordic historical fiction of times long past there is hunger and cold and darkness That is the way it was And people living in such difficult times did such twisted things
