I enjoyed this book. I liked Dorca's cynical observations and wit, especially about her neighbors and the library patrons. I also liked how she grew to appreciate her twin sister Abigail.

One of the funniest books I've read in quite a while! A book about sisterhood without the pretentions or the sappy emotions. The main character is blunt, honest and rational; she makes hilarious commentary about her sister's illicit behaviour and affairs, even though she still does what she can to help. This book also has one of the best "casts" of supporting characters. A very funny, intelligent book.

good, fast read. A bit confusioning and no real conclusion.
