"It's like, if you have a nice garden to live in, then you should never leave it." If there were an FDA label for books, I might recommend it for Millet's A Children's Bible. Utterly engrossing and mind-altering, consuming too much in too little time might cause some serious side effects (in a good way). Millet's apocalyptic tale sneaks up on you, portraying humankind's slow but sure demise as witnessed by an unlikely passel of teenagers. True to the book's title, the book is rife with biblical themes, which, in a modern context, are revealed for all of the horror, devastation, and bloodshed they hold.
