This was not my favorite book. I thought of stopping reading about the middle but because of the reviews I continued. I was not rewarded, to my way of thinking. I didn't like the main character, I thought it was trashy in the sex scenes, and was very glad when it was over. I understand what Hoffman was trying to picture, and to that end, I think she did a good job. I just didn't like the darkness and the real lack of character in the protagonist. I don't recommend it.

Diane Christy gosh you read so much! i know you read really fast too. wish i could!

Dlhmoore I commit at least 1 hour to reading each night if I can stay awake. I go to bed at 9:00 and read to 10. I know this wouldn't be possible for you right now. Sorry. Don't read this book. I got it at the book store where I work and it's an Oprah pick. I was very disappointed!
