it was ok
Read in November, 2009

The writing is fine, and some of the themes resonated with me. If the author intended to leave the reader unsure of whether the characters were nasty caricatures, she pulled that off nicely, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks seemed like a convenient way to wrap up the plot without letting it play out.

I could probably get more out of this book through further analysis, but nothing about it makes me want to try
