I thought this book could have been 100 pages shorter. I put it down several times to read other books. There is a lot of stream-of-consciousness writing that does not lend a hand to the story. The main character is not likable which made it hard to care about her plight. I can't believe this book got so many rave reviews.

Couldn't put it down. She's a great story teller.
