VERY impressive, especially for a debut novel! It's so interesting that she teaches creative writing to older adults. The story goes back and forth between the present and 7 years ago but it's cleverly done and she writes in a way that makes you want to keep turning pages. Definitely a different plot and that was terrific! Interesting to see the different reactions from other readers.

Creepy and disturbing. A different kind of read than my normal go--to.

Following the MC in this book through the time jumps was easy. Her self-doubt was done well and kept me guessing whether her issues were in her head, from intoxication (drug or otherwise), or something far more disturbing. The payoff was in the bar toward the end of the book, and I did not know how it would all turn out. I enjoyed the writing and it took me just about 24 hours to get through over a weekend. I couldn't put the book down for the first ten chapters, and after that, I was just happy to see where it went. I would though have liked a little more "meat" at the end of the book, perhaps even a misdirect before the end. I still think though its a worthwhile read over a weekend or on a trip.… (mais)
