Gobbled this book up in two days. The writing style is spare and gives a good mirror of the disjointed thought processes of the narrator. I thought that the suspense element of the prose was a little heavy handed, but the way the plot was revealed was pretty good. Some of the rationalisation takes some swallowing- I'm all for the suspension of disbelief in a good story but some things that Chrissy did or knew how to do made me blink hard. It's going to make a good film if they can find a way to use all the flashbacks and journal entries without it getting bogged down.
