did not like it
Read in January, 2012 — I own a copy

Superficiality, in this virtueless journal with empty characters. Even the sex [not to be considered erotic] scenes were abysmal. I felt sorry for Madeline, but then she really had no common sense. No saving graces at all.

For a sophisticated and expert review see Michiko Kakutani in the NYT book reviews. She is slightly more sympathetic than I am.

minus 2 stars.
