The characters were too bizarre for me to get into this one!

Absolutely one of the best novels ever written. The characters are so real you can almost touch them! Barbara wrote this with a sensitivity that is breathtaking.
Hilarious one minute, tearful the next, she mixes in every other human emotion in a naked expose of humanity that will make any one who reads it a better person.
The plot is as complex as any person ever was, even more.
Not for beginners or children, YOU MUST READ THIS NOVEL, PLEASE!!!!!!

I really tried getting into this book. I really did, but the author's writing is so bizarre and jumps all over the place I really couldn't get into it. Besides, I have a zillion other books to read. Cheers!
