's review
Dec 10, 2007

bookshelves: unfinished
Read in August, 2008

This was too horrific for me. I closed it just before the halfway point and only managed not to throw it into the fire because I knew I had a class session on it the next day (at the end of which I gave it away). I WANT TO SCRUB MY BRAIN CLEAN. Seriously, though, I hate putting these things into my head.

It deserves five stars, definitely, but I hated it so much I'm leaving it starless.
