My comments :
I have a love and hate relationship with this book. So far I have bought and read three of her books and I had loved them However, this book is different.
I hated the cruelty, emotional torture and the feeling of helplessness in this book. From the beginning to the end, the feeling of helplessness lingers. I wish I can change the story here and there a bit to make life not so horrible for both Serena and Poppy.
However, I salute the author for having the stomach to write this book. It must have been hard to write on this topic. I love the way, she brings the readers step by step on what was life for both Serena and Poppy.
Overall for me this is a good read but not for those who are prone to depression.
