I read another copy of this book in 2004. This is what I wrote after I read it:
This debut novel tells of the relationship of two friends, how they react to a young woman attractive to both, how they deal with living in a small village meant for their re-education, and how books take on a special meaning in their lives. Books such as those that people in free countries take for granted can be like treasure for those deprived of them. This novel tells what two young men do with such a precious treasure.
