it was amazing
Read from April 22 to 23, 2011

Excellent novel that drew me in from the start; a bit of a gimmicky finish but I loved the humor interwoven throughout in this quasi-mystery story of a dysfunctional family and their son made good, told through the eyes of mom's frumpy friend. It has stylistic overtones of Zoe Heller's "Notes From a Scandal" -- you know you can't quite trust the narrator's motives and views of the family.
