The Giant Dark is captivating and gorgeous. A sensual treat of a novel about youth, euphoria and the ways we chain ourselves to other people. Hasin creates a world where passion, love and duty mingle with artifice and false promise, and brings into that world two lovers whose combustible mix of desire and nostalgia will result in tragedy. It's a book to read when you're up alone late at night, missing people. When you've forgotten what it's like to dance in a crowd, to hold someone's hand, to lose yourself in another person, read this book.
