it was ok
Read in January, 2012

I am not sure what to think of this. I had heard that it was great, but I wasn't too sure. I thought it was well written, and kind of interesting. But also, I sat there most of the time and was like 'ew, gross. Why am I reading this?'
Also, I kind of failed to see what the point was. I had thought that the main plot line was likely to be about her murder, but there seemed to be more about her sister's romance, which while interesting really had no relevance to the rest of the story.
I am glad I read it, if simply because now I know what people are talking about when they talk about this, but I didn't really know what to make of it. Disturbing, but for no apparent purpose? I just found it all a little strange.
