Not Too Bad, Slightly Twisted

I was drawn to this book from the plot and I enjoyed the book, but it isn't one of my top books. The ending is crazy and twisted but very predictable from the beginning. I can see how they could of made the story a little better, but I can't say it was a bad book. I gue...
I was drawn to this book from the plot and I enjoyed the book, but it isn't one of my top books. The ending is crazy and twisted but very predictable from the beginning. I can see how they could of made the story a little better, but I can't say it was a bad book. I guess it was a little jumbled at points which was one of the main problems and felt like they wrote it too fast instead of taking more time to write a solid plot. Still, I enjoyed it.

We just had our book group discussion tonight and the overwhelming, unanimous consensus was bad. We all thought it was dreadfully slow, depressing, disconnected and hard to follow. Most of us had a tough time forcing ourselves to finish it. If the author truly wrote this influenced by experiences in her life, she must have a very depressing life. It seemed to be a book about the futility of life, and how much more depressing can that be?

    jaunty and easy to read, but somewhat convoluted.

    the writing style and author's voice were what made the book very readable. however, the central tension in the book remained a bit hard to follow.

    in fact, if i hadn't read the back cover synopsis, i might have missed one aspect of a central character's part in the plot.

    i did enjoy the set-up and the menacing presence of the mall.
