Wow. What a ride. I started out almost forcing myself to keep reading chapter after chapter. I hated the first-person narrative and the story seemed to lack soul and warmth. Or maybe it was just way too real? There are things that I did not like about this book but about half way through, these dislikes seemed to fade away into nothingness. I finished the second half of the book almost in a day (while spending 3 weeks on the first half) and was mesmerized by some of the ideas that were stated in the book. Also I grew to like the main character and started to relate to her. In the end, I found this book to be both unique and brilliant. It is not perfect and probably will not be for everyone's taste but it is by far one of the most fascinating stories I have read.
