Just catching up with one of my book groups. We discussed this book on April 8, 2008, when I had read a little less than half of the book. My typical passive-aggressive book club behavior . . . When I set this book down, I think I probably won't pick it up again; it's a rather depressing view of an ill-fated character . . . but then I find myself quite eager to get back to it, and it draws me in right away. That's good writing, I guess.

Finally done, only a few months post-discussion-of-it. There was a slow section, but overall it was sad, funny, and quite satisfying.
