really liked it

** spoiler alert ** Read it way, way back when I was 12. Even at the time, I remember thinking "Y U NOT GET OUT OF ROOM LOL U CRZY." But the sheer banality of it makes it disturbing... I mean the wallpaper? You can't even trust the wallpaper to have your back now? It's like you got attacked by the laundry hamper.

And of course, the social context of the protagonist is even creepier, with the very kind Man Who Will Take Care Of Her. Which is why at the end, you're concerned not about the result (either crazy or lost woman), but concerned that she may have, at the end, made the right call for her. And THAT... that's just scary.
