really liked it
bookshelves: 2013, book-club
Read from July 09 to 23, 2013

This novel is populated with a lot of people who are very difficult to like. I found myself at times disgusted by them and then, at other times, completely compelled and rapidly turning pages. This was a story about a family, like many of our families probably, that hide much and speak in half truths. Maybe this is a cautionary tale?
