it was ok
bookshelves: fiction

This books seemed to be touted as psychological fiction. More like psychological Ambien. It's pretty much just boring. Paul has a violent encounter with a "man in the woods," and most of the book is the aftermath of that event. The problem is that the characters are just annoying. Paul himself seems to be set up as pretty much a perfect man--talented, sensitive, etc. His girlfriend is a born-again recovering alcoholic, who now makes a fortune from a book she wrote. Her daughter Ruby appears to be mentally ill, but nobody notices. I kept waiting for someone to either think, speak, or act realistically, and it just never happens. Skip this one.
