Cry to Heaven - Anne Rice - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Cry to Heaven:

Living with the physically altering effects of a life-changing song.

My favorite quote from the book:

"True evil in this world is done by those with no imagination."

Questions to ponder while reading Cry to Heaven:

How is your relationship with your father?

Do you like opera?

My thoughts about the book:

A great tale of playing the cards you were dealt.

There has to be a special place in purgatory for parents who hurt their children.

*Note* this is about the Castrati and therefore may not be for everyone.
