really liked it

This is a book about obsessive love and it feels obsessive -- redundant and relentless and insoluble. It shows the human costs of religious beliefs that oppress women -- and ultimately men by setting up roles and rules that are incompatible with the vagaries of human nature. I got exasperated and exhausted reading it, and I wasn't at all sure that the author was free of the beliefs that oppressed the narrator, but I also couldn't put it down.
