really liked it
Read in March, 2009

I had heard the author read from this book that she obviously loved. She sang and bayed like a hound and I thought "better skip this book." But there was so much buzz surrounding the book-lots of speculation that it was going to be an award winner. And then I saw that it was a runner up to the Newberry. So I gave it a chance. The first 50 chapters were a little slow and I couldn't imagine where it was going. Then I was hooked and had to finish the story in one night. A truly unique and somewhat haunting book; though I will never get over the author's read. Perhaps passion drives us to do and write strange things.
