I have this book, no idea when I received it, but I am about to read it.

Journal Entry 4 by wingBooksandMusicwing at Seattle, Washington USA on Thursday, June 19, 2014
Read it straight through, I was fascinated and continually wanted to know what would happen next. I wondered how it would end, and it does end in one manner of speaking, but we are still left to wonder what happens next?? It is creepy, sad, terrifying as mother and daughter flee from hotel to hotel in search of temporary safety and brief normalcy. Twisted version of love. A most unusual book.



This will be going into the letter E bookring.

Journal Entry 6 by Meekachu07 at Saint Paul, Minnesota USA on Friday, June 24, 2016
I gave this one a shot and didn't finish it, but I should add that our house has been chaotic that last few weeks with people staying with us and its been difficult to find a time to read, so I had too long of time between reading sessions to get into it. I plan on making this available via a book box.

Journal Entry 9 by wingjlautnerwing at San Luis Obispo, California USA on Thursday, December 15, 2016
I went back and forth with this one. It got me from the very first page, which was good. But then I wondered if it would dissolve along the way.

The story is mostly narrated by the daughter, who is in her teens by the end and who remembers things from her earlier childhood as the book goes along. She talks about her life with her mother, living in hotels and then leaving suddenly, leaving clothes, toys, collections of rocks behind, running with nothing more than a backpack. And starting again in another hotel.

They often spend several months in one hotel, which made me wonder what they were running from. The girl's description of her mother's behavior suggests that the mother might be imagining her pursuers. Yet there is something about the whole situation that needs an explanation.

Here and there are chapters told from the point of view of observers. People at the hotels who see the girl, who see the mother, who even try to interact with them, although they tend to not welcome it.

We are left wondering about what kind of woman the girl had become, how much her "prayerbook", Bambi, had influenced her, how much she had internalized her mother's story about the world.

I had sympathy for the girl but did not find the observers particularly likeable. The book leaves us with a lot to think and wonder about.
