really liked it

I had been told Under the Skin was about a female predator, which isn't exactly true, but unfortunately it's one of those books where trying to summarize it any other way or to say anything more than that gives away most of the plot. Suffice it to say that the predator turns out to be not really a predator and the story ends up being almost heartwarming and I think is supposed to make you question our eating practices, or something. I enjoyed reading it but was a little let down when it turned out to be nothing like the kind of book I expected it to be.
