K.L. Going is an immensely talented writer. She creates visual imagery that is stunning. Every word in this book seems carefully picked out to convey a thought or an emotion; there is no filler where the writing itself is concerned. But at the same time, not much HAPPENS in the book, and everything that does is incredibly depressing. The ending is so miserably sad that the book left me with an empty feeling. It's been over a year since I've read it, but I still remember that feeling.

This is also a book where I wanted to shake sense into (and/or) slap most of the supporting characters. Iggy himself is very likable, despite his "saint-like" part in the book. But again, it's much the feeling I got when I read She Comes Undone, where the main character is constantly dumped upon by nearly everyone and it's just too unfair.
