    I probably would have given this four stars if I had have read it in a less distracted fashion This is a book to read all at once, or in long sittings I really loved some of the writing and the characters It won the Sue Kaufman prize for first fiction, and I think it deserves it The whole thing felt like I was sitting down with the narrator and being told a ...

    It pains me to abandon a book once I ve started it, so I tend to be very selective about what I read to begin with Despite my reservations about this one, however, I opted to give it a try because it was the first selection for a book club I d joined Unfortunately, after 115 pages, I found it too long and slow to spendtime on when there are so many other books I want to read.The cover of the book advertised the awards it has won, and the topic of a murder linked to Guatemala s illegal ad It pains me to abandon a book once I ve started it, so I tend to be very selective about what I read to begin with Despite my reservations about this...
