Another book that kept me up all night reading. Great writing, great story, but not light reading at all! The story is tragic and depressing, but definately worth a read!

Very interesting premise for a story, but the main character is so flawed and debases herself so flagrantly, it detracts from the enjoyment of the book.

Billed as a "modern day Lolita," be prepared for a lot of sexual abuse and a fairly depressing story. I liked it a lot but was not ready for the rawness of the obsessive love story.

Riveting, shocking, not for the weak hearted...This is an intense book.

Highly sexually deviant, I didn't like this book. It was well written but it was not an enjoyable experience.
