This was a book club selection.

Although I can see that GGM is a talented writer, I have never warmed up to any of his books. This one was no different. The novel is about a dysfunctional quasi-aristocratic family that damages their daughter to the point of her behavior appearing demonic. In come the bishops and nuns to "help", ending up in an exorcism. During all this, one of the churchmen falls in love with the daughter (who is TWELVE YEARS OLD). Gross.
The style was allegorical; characters seemed to be flat and symbolic rather than authentic humans. And of course GGM's love of the gastrointestinal system and other bodily functions permeates the novel. Also gross. I am honestly not sure what the message or point of the novel is. I am looking forward to book club discussion to help me comprehend.… (more)
