Sort of gripping, but ambiguous in a way that isn't satisfying, and saturated with convoluted over-explanation from the narrator that adds little to her character, only serving to puff up a plot that's frankly a bit skinny. Probably interesting from a criticism point of view, but I won't be reading it for pleasure again.
