did not like it
bookshelves: didnt-finish
Recommended for: no one
Read in October, 2008

I hated this book and couldn't even make it to page 50. I love Alice Sebold's other books and I am not faint of heart or offput by violence but the tone of the protagonist, well, offended me. The main character kills her ailing mother (not a spoiler, she states this in the first sentence) and then goes on to have flashbacks to her childhood that are supposed to explain why? I had no sympathy for her and I will just warn you, the way she talks about her mother's genitalia was especially offensive to me. I won't be finishing this book. I don't recommend.
