Can I just say 'wow'? This is one of those reviews that I've put off until nearly (but not quite) the last minute, because I just don't know what to say....but I'll try my best.

It was so strange, but so good. The author's conscious decision to omit quotation marks really spoke to the mental state of his main character. It was definitely a risk worth taking. The entire structure of the story constantly reminded you that you were in the mind of a mentally unstable person. I could for sure see her degrading, which I think speaks a lot about the author's ability to alter his voice to that of his characters. You never FELT like she was normal (but when is a main character normal?), and even if you were fooled for a second, you were bounced right back by one of her episodes.

This story made me feel...
