Read in December, 2007

Recommended by Jason, reading presently.

The best thing about the book was the narrator's way of over explaining her sentences when they didn't need to be explained. It was the best depiction of a person going insane. I also enjoyed the one liners, such as "The things one becomes tardily aware of," and "God. The things men used to do."

I finished this book on New Years Eve 2007; I expected to cry after reading the quotes on the cover that dared me not to at the end but... I didn't cry. It was very sad, however.
