I'm not afraid!

(Io non ho paura) July's book was Niccolo Ammaniti's novel about a young boy discovering unwelcome truth. I've seen the film twice - maybe a few more times than that, as I've also seen it on dvd. I was therefore gratefuly for the opportunity of reading the book - in English! Beautifully written but a deeply disturbing book. Good review here (apart from the unprintable characters!) - though it does give a little too much away! Another review at Valentina's room:
I was afraid of ghosts and my grandfather told me the same thing as Michele’s father once. He lived with Mafia all his life. He knew that men could be a lot more dangerous than monsters or ghosts.
