it was amazing
Read from August 23 to September 16, 2012

One of the reviewers on the jacket called the book a cocktail made with battery acid that still manages to taste delicious. It's a perfect description. A plot that should be totally ludicrous (and is certainly disturbing) is made believable by the spot-on depiction of that most ordinary of tragedies: a failing marriage. This one just so happens to be a failure of epic proportions. You'll spit venom at the characters and fiercely pity them in the same breath. The mystery keeps the pages flying to the end, where you learn that not all "morals of the story" are, well, moral. So good.
