it was ok
Read in March, 2009

Eh. It's a good detective story I guess. I had her for a class once and thought she was much more intelligent and acerbic when speaking. She referred once to loneliness in a way I really liked: "I don't anymore, but I can remember how it felt to be that lonely, to feel loneliness like a missing limb."

Actually, my favorite part of this book comes at the end, an interview she's granted as one of those book fillers they add so they can write: "P.S. Insights, Interviews & More Inside!" on the cover.

Q: "What's your guilty reading pleasure or favorite trashy read?"
A: "I never read, watch, or listen to anything remotely 'trashy,' for life is too short.
