did not like it
Read in September, 2008

The writing is repetitive, and the visuals are uncreative and obviously depressing. She hits you over the head with the misery of her characters, but to what point?
Shockingly mean and violent events abound, but again I saw no point. The only character that was suprred to action by the violent events is not even alive in the time line of the novel. We never meet her and it is only through the fog of time that she manages to "help" our main character. And that help is feeble, uncelebrated. Our main character seems to want to change, seems to suggest she might, but I have no faith that if the book continued she would change or find happiness. A book needs a point, and this book's point must have been to be pitied.
