Review: This book is bizarre from start to finish.  It comes together in the end, but I was confused for about 3/4 of it.  Personally it wasn’t my cup of tea.  It was dark and delved into difficult topics such as abuse, murder, and deeply entrenched racism.  There were many things that still didn’t make sense to me even at the conclusion, but I just did not have the bandwidth to wade back through the book to try to make all the connections.  The writing style is very unique and it took me awhile to adjust to it. I would not be surprised if people DNF this book simply because it is difficult to follow.  Although I can see why there is buzz surrounding this book, it is not one I will be widely recommending.
