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!
