Quick (not bad) listen ....

To be brief, this novel is not about chains of events or mystery of any kind. Rather it is a swirls of deep emotions and self pity and literally decomposition of a human soul.

Maybe it's you

Divorce is terrible. I've played its victim in various roles. That's why I was interested in this book. But this lady's complete lack of rationality is indefensible. Sickening in fact. (Spoiler alert.) To turn on your children and dog like that just means you're a bad person. I don't care what you're going through. To victimize the innocent is never justifiable. What your husband did is despicable. But you're no better.
