it was ok
bookshelves: historical, mystery
Read in February, 2008

This book has an engaging plot, but it is very dark. The narrator's world is one of stalkers, bullies, child molestors, kidnappers, and an alcoholic mother. Once the story got going, I was involved in the characters and curious about questions raised by the narrator and the plot, but the ending felt rushed. It pulled me out of the story, and almost felt false. It didn't bring the closure for which it was reaching.
