Review by

This was fascinating. I hesitate to say it was an enjoyable read, but only because of the frequently grim subject manner. Adah is extremely engaging and her story is written in a way that kept me constantly interested and wanting to read on. The only problem for me was that the ending went completely over my head. I just don't understand what happened there, but I know how damn hard it is to end a story/book satisfactorily so am happy to be forgiving about that (in any case, the failure to understand could well be completely my fault.)
