Summary:

    This story was meant to be a cautionary tale, I think. Her poet friend at the end gives such sage advice about why we should never give up, despite hardships and adversity. Every life is precious and has a purpose- the story was meant to describe a person’s difficult life and circumstances and remind us that suicide is not the answer. Definitely not a book for entertainment as much as reflection on the nature of life, death and response to life’s tragedies. The narrator did a fantastic job - love her voice!

    I don't know if anything was expurgated from this book, but it's certainly not very erotic. It only hints at the idea of an "incestuous relationship"--nothing ever happens. In fact the father can't stand his own thoughts.... Most of the book, narrated by Mathilda, is spent on moaning about her situations, whatever they may be, and she goes on and on and on and on...

    I enjoyed the book. It is dark and reflective and gives new perspectives on how people feel when they want to commit suicide.... the narrator did a great job!

    I really had fun with the flowery language and the narrator; however, it was ultimately boring in plot haha.

    I found this story a bit boring.

    Although this book is not exciting, it is very interesting. It is a look into a depression of a troubled youth. I don't think it was meant for everyone's enjoyment.

    This book did not hold my interest.... I found it too unbelievable.
