A good story, if a bit touchy-feely for a thriller. A girl's thriller I guess. Extra estrogen. But a decent amount of tension. Only one of the culprits actually surprised me and so while interesting wasn't the most original, but then again that would be a tall order considering the genre. Alice I found to be a bit too realistic if you know what I mean. Indecisive, ineffectual and easily manipulated she barely did anything to get a handle on what was happening to her. Different, I have to give it that, but I don't know...I couldn't really care because she didn't seem to. I think she felt that somehow she'd skate into a solution like she skated through the rest of her life. And her father (who I kept picturing as John Huston) was completely weird...as if he was channeling Oprah or something. And I remember wondering several times at some particular word usages; I can't remember any offhand, but If I do, I'll edit. Suffice to say they were odd enough to pull me out of the story for a sec. Still, I might give another one of Ms. Burke's books a try someday.
