This is absolutely not the kind of book to be rated up with Faulkner, Stein, Bronte, or _____ (name your favorite author). This book actually came at the perfect time for me. I had just finished reading State of Fear
by Crichton and needed a fast, easy read. And what I got was this dirty, grungy book - and I loved it. In my younger years (wow, I'm not old yet and here I am talking like a grandma) I was definitely a fan of the grunge era. And this book was just what I imagined it to be.
A more detailed, in-depth review to come. Once it's published, I'll link to my blog here.
