The first 185 pages of this book were excruciating. I was so frustrated with the author's writing style. She introduced so many characters and wrote the story from each of their perspectives that it gave me the feeling of whiplash. I'd just start to connect to a character and then the narrator would flip to someone else. Then she might backtrack to an event mentioned earlier but from the new character's view point. I wish Rice had taken Bernie's character and made her the narrator then told all of the other character's stories through her. Bernie had the most unique angle to offer the story and all of the other plot lines intersected hers. I enjoyed the last 100 pages. The story resolution was written so much better and the story really took hold.
