I read this book as part of a Summer Book Challenge/Internet Book Club. It would not have been a book I would have picked up of my own accord. But, I did enjoy it. I tore through it much faster than I expected and was much more involved in the character than I thought I would be. I still would not have picked it up at the bookstore, but nonetheless I am glad I read this book. It is not a book for everyone, but I can say you might not be disappointed if you pick it up.
