Not as engaging as "This is how you lose her" but still a good read with an interesting perspective. The characters are deeply flawed, yet real people.

We The Animals by Justin Torres is a very engaging novel with complex but nonetheless intriguing language. Torres’ writing style works perfectly with the complicated plot. Throughout the novel, his clever use of rhetoric devices functions to make the story flow and appeal to the reader. It is about 3 brothers who grow up in a bad family dynamic and have to overcome all the struggles. Each brother is different in their own special way and they each have to find a way to survive their upbringing in the best way they know how.
