Great but extremely sad

I love Lorna Landvik's writing, and this book is no exception. It is really great, but a bit depressing. I don't mean to sound rude about other crippled people, but I think I would have enjoyed Violet's character more if she still had her arm. I know the book might have...
I love Lorna Landvik's writing, and this book is no exception. It is really great, but a bit depressing. I don't mean to sound rude about other crippled people, but I think I would have enjoyed Violet's character more if she still had her arm. I know the book might have not been the same and as great as it is now, and that losing an arm to the machines back then was very common, but I kind of struggled to relate to the loss of her arm. Maybe if she had paralyzed it, which is sort of the same idea, I could've understood her pain on a deeper level. I think the constant use of the word "stump" made it sound kind of ridiculous. I really don't mean to offend any people in that condition, though! This is just my opinion on the book.
But really overall it was great! Patty Jane's House of Curl and Angry Housewives Eaing Bon Bons are still my favorite of Lorna's books, though.

A slow steady tale...

I read this book solely because of the author. I liked it but found that is was pretty slow and sad.The characters were real and I was intereted in their lives but it was just a little too slow for me
