review 1: I'm not sure what to make of this novel. If I had stopped before reading the final 10%, I would have given it 3 stars for sure and possibly 4. However, for me, the ending fell very flat.

... moret is a story about a very disfuntional family where the lines between reality and fiction are often blurred. A very slow moving story that failed to keep my attention. A hard read. less
