I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It seems like such a morbid subject - I mean, Clementine is an artist who starts the book out with the planning of her own suicide. We meet her after she's already completely given up - yet the sense of humor infused into the voice of the character is engaging, and even addicting.

I've not always been a big fan of women's fiction. Sometimes it seems as if it's seeking to pull tears out of nothing, stabbing here and there with a tender subject, hoping to provoke a reaction in the reader. Clementine succeeded in getting a rise out of me - for different emotions, and that is what really makes this book one that was enjoyable.
