I will write more later, but for now, this book is exquisite in its beautiful broken melancholy and bittersweet sad girl apotheosis.

This was a fun, quirky, sometimes confusing, rather dark little book. I enjoyed the narrative structure and found the characters well-developed and interesting. "Gothic" is certainly an apt description. I would also add spooky and surreal. Carl Bell was my favorite character.

The first chapter knocked my socks off. I couldn't wait to dive into this weird world! Unfortunately, lust overwhelmed the story. While I'm glad I kept with it and read to the end, and there were many surprising turns and interesting moments, I wouldn't say that overall I really *liked* it which was disappointing after the first chapter.

Potential Spoiler?

The main character's desire for an adult/minor relationship really bothered me. For most of the novel, she is 19 and he is 33 or so, which is actually less than the difference in ages in "Just Like You" where the age difference didn't bother me. The difference is: 1) the characters met and started a friendship when she was less than 15 and 2) the descriptions of lust outweighed much else of the character's thoughts/feelings. Unfortunately, this drowned much of the magic for me.… (mais)

I wish I would have had this book 3 years ago, but now I will have it forever.
