it was ok
Read in July, 2007

It seemed like I waited for years for this book to come out. Maybe that contributed to my disappointment. I just wasn't feeling this one - I didn't connect with the characters or even enjoy the ride much. I never really understood what Julie found so facinating about Renata. I think Hendricks usually does a better job of establishing the downward spiral of her main character - but in this one, I just felt like Julie was already lost when the book started.

Is it possible that I had a problem connecting because the catalyst for Julie's demise in this one was a woman? Could be, though I like to think I'm above that kind of thing.
