This was a very different kind of story. It centers around Claire who is very down on her luck and an unnamed customer that she is forced to keep company with. The customer remains unnamed through out the entire story. The customer talks about his life and social issues that tie in with his life. And Claire forms her opinions about the customer and his choices based on her experiences in her life. It is a pretty intriguing read as it basically reads like a conversation between two people. The customer talks alot about a lost love and missed chances. This book makes you think about the choices and missed opportunities that we have in our lives. Go ahead and give this book a try. It has some very good social points in it that make the whole story worth a closer look.
