It took me a while to get into this book. The first chapter introduces you to a somewhat dark, depressing character, some 4-letter words related to sex, and just generally read slow. I wasn't sure I was going to want to continue reading.

Then the story picks up, and the character seems to be coming into her own.

I enjoyed reading it for the most part, despite the fact that I didn't like how sex seemed to be on everyone's minds much of the time and some of the author's choice of words were uncouth and a bit offensive.

But I did enjoy the story as it developed and it held my interest throughout.

However....the culmination left me disturbed. That's all I will say so as not to spoil the ending if you are planning to read the book.
