I like the premise of a deaf person being the main character but she is highly unlikeable and the story line is ridiculous. Playing amateur detective without contacting the police and then after all that not even following through in the end. It's dissapointing.

Boyle takes the reader into the world of identity theft from the perspective of both the victim and the thief. The thief's slimy character is developed so thoroughly that I found myself unable to sympathize with any aspect of him. All my sympathies lay with the victim Dana, a young deaf woman, and her boyfriend Bridger, who travel cross-country in pursuit of the man who stripped her of her dignity and puts her relationship withBridger in jeopardy. I was not only angry at the injustice of their situation, but also at the prejudices Dana has to endure living in a hearing world. The novel is well written and kept my interest, but the ending is ambiguous.

T.C. Boyle is becoming one of my favorite authors. I love his style. He writes from the perspective of all the characters. You're exposed to the human side of the villan, and at the same time, disgusted by his flamboyant abuse of his victims.

I enjoy the themes that run through this book. Food and drink, things representing the mouth, and voice.
