it was ok
Read in December, 2008

This very short book was heavily hyped on both the New York Times and Entertainment Weekly Best of 2008 lists, but I was incredibly underwhelmed. Random bits and pieces of creeping dread are thrown in from time to time and nothing is ever explained and there is no plot. A dead baby is introduced, carried around and buried without much comment. An extramarital affair, spousal abuse, and murders both past and future are alluded to but never explored. So, in short, about 100 pages of gothic atmosphere that goes nowhere. And this is great because.....?
