This is quite obviously a work of juvenilia. The characters, the themes, even the plot need to be developed more to be interesting and complete. That being said, the book is far better than the most polished bestsellers of our time. It is disappointing that this was Emily's only novel as she showed a great deal of promise in this first work.

Read it in a college writing course. Hated the characters: that one girl was an utter bitch and deserved to get smacked around; the main guy was a complete weirdo. And the narrator was a complete whacko. Too weird by half; I don't care if it is a classic.

I really don't know why more people don't read this book or list it here. It is an incredible read, both for education or entertainment. I recommend anyone with an opportunity to read this do so.

This book is so wonderfully dark and brooding and filled with comeuppance and revenge and hurt feelings and oppressive nature and horrible and wonderful humanity that I think everyone in the entire world should grab a copy and read it right away.
