Helpful Score: 2
Well once again I was overwhelmed by the violence, sorrow and painful revealing of the coming of age of a young girl who is abused by almost all the men she meets. She escapes from one situation to another with the same results. Tho I am ok reading about abuse, I really have a problem reading about people hurting themself by cutting themselves.It is well written, and you grow very fond of the heroine, but overall it was just too dark for my taste. I also read The Rapture of Canaan, and ended up giving it away as too depressing.
