Read from September 10 to 27, 2010

I really liked this book initially and wanted it to be the book I was hoping it would be. Premise follows a steel heiress and her plight to 'find herself'. Author does a good job really placing you in the characters' shoes, he changes the point of view periodically. The book was going swimmingly until around the 200pg mark and it took hard right. The author introduces characters that are verbally and sexually abusive/manipulative. It goes away for a little while and returns with force. Ifthe author had just left or really really toned down those aspects, it would have been a really interesting book. I'd like to take a mental cleanse from some of the scenes. Barf.
