It's one of those books that make a nice little shiver run up your back and a tiny little squeeze of tears come out of your eyes when you finish. Don't know what the formula is to produce such an effect. I think it's at least one multi-faceted character, a little plot (doesn't have to be much - but I do require some plot) and some non-predictability. Yep. I think that might sum it up. And as for my reviews - I don't feel the need to report one bit of information about what the book's about. Just want to record my reaction.

I suppose I could afford it, but I think I can't. Tap water is good enough for me. Nobody has died of it yet, as far as I know. Are they all B-movie actors, like Achilles, these mineral-water-drinking black men?"
