I had read many reviews of how good this book was but never felt inclined to read it until I read a 1-star review by a blogger who DNF the book because it was to detailed and gruesome for her. Vivid and detailed? I'm in!

I wanted more of Paul...

Damn good. Perhaps a little bit shorter? I felt it was dragging at one point.

Different POVs some times work and some times don't. This was one of the times that it worked for me. I loved the voice of Julia's father. I'm sure they'll make this book into a movie.
