Know it could be true, Hope it was not
Such a talented and imaginative author and one that I have long enjoyed. The story was shocking and crazy and too real at times, but also had a few too many coincidences for my taste. I won't ruin it by pointing them out.
As for the narrator, the "voices" were hard to differentiate at times. But her own voice was soothing and easy on the ear, which adds to the enjoyment of the story for me.
For 5 stars, I would prefer that the author edit out the banal chapters of dialog...For instance, one conversation between Honor and her mother almost led me to shut it down. And the characters were not true to their established personality, such as Ed's chosen moment of emotional display.
Still, an enjoyable story and one that has you knowing it could have easily been a true story and also hoping that it was not.
