Read in July, 2008

An interesting plot for many reasons, but I never really connected to the characters. A commentary on death and the ways in which we feel obligated to take care of the dead, but also on fake-relationships in Los Angeles. Maybe a larger commentary on that, than on death, which is fine, I guess. I can understand why the book shook things up when it was published, but it left me a little cold.
