Mazur does an excellent job of characterizing 'the man.' His point-of-view comes across as disturbingly creepy and realistic. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone by saying what exactly happens, but 'the man' is a child predator who watches five sisters walk to and from school every day, thinking about which one he would like to 'keep.' I thought Mazur's detail about his pets was particularly chilling, that he would only kept the obedient, satisfactory ones and killed the others). It gives me chills just thinking about it.
