I finished Loving Frank. It was the book of the month in my book club. We all agreed that these were two despicable characters.

Your review is stellar!
Thanks so much for responding. If it gets too difficult to read in this form, you could always ask your local library to order a copy (if they don’t have one already). The book is available on for about $10, but since I’m hoping for a review, I didn’t feel it was appropriate to expect you to buy a copy :)
Noticed you liked The Glass Castle, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a dysfunctional family (and also a bit dark). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


'Twilight' was set as a laugh at my bookclub the other day - a lot of otherwise perfectly rational people said they 'couldn't
put it down'. I tried to explain to them why I couldn't abide it and why they to should join me in my contempt - but nothing doing. The mind reels.
Brainella - thank God. I despised Twilight as well.
I was contributing to a library Wiki the other day and was surrounded by
Meyer devotees. There's something quite, quite wrong about those people.
Very interesting library, by the way.
