Strange, but consider the source

Riveting and repulsive (?) at once. Had to finish it!, the story had me in its thrall.

depressing

I made it painfully to chapter 25. And I finally gave up. But maybe it's supposed to be painful. It's a very depressing book. but hey if someone feels like they are in a low, the protagonist here has got to be lower.
