David (david_giltinan) | 58 comments I can't even begin to express my depth of loathing for this book. I forced myself through to within about 60 pages of the end, but then I just couldn't bear it any more. I just didn't want to know any more about the vile people in this ridiculous family with all their dark, dirty, entirely predictable secrets.

Gaaaah! I left it behind on a plane somewhere. Should have attached a toxic warning label.

Allison I'm sorry to hear you didn't like it! I loved this book, and the narrator is one of my favorites of all time. During those last 60 pages, I was so upset about what was happening to her that I couldn't focus on anything until I finished it.

I have become a huge Kate Atkinson fan, but I feel this to be her strongest work of the others I've read.

Laura (laurahogan) You know, I really like Kate Atkinson, but after reading a bunch of David posts, goddamn I think I just fell in love with him.
