I would give this 2 1/2 if I could. I liked the existential/philosophical questions the author pondered in this book. It was nice to have that conversation with someone else who has similar questions and to see what their thoughts were. I really could have done without the completely random, highly detailed rape scenes, especially on an audio book where it's hard to know where to skip ahead to. Survivors beware, triggers ahead. :P
I find myself highly disappointed by book endings lately. Like so many others that I've rated low in the past year or so, the ending just seemed to abrupt and lacking. Not quite on the order of "it was all a dream," but honestly, is it too much to ask for characters to develop during the course of a novel? For them to experience SOME kind of personal growth? Really? Feh.
