Journal Entry 1 by JenKazoo from Shreveport, Louisiana USA on Saturday, April 19, 2008
I bought this book at the Friends of the Library Booksale for 50 cents.

It is on my wishlist so I was pretty excited to find it.

Journal Entry 2 by JenKazoo from Shreveport, Louisiana USA on Wednesday, June 04, 2008
Moore's novel is told from the perspective of four different characters, Helen the incarcerated prisoner, Dr. Louise Forrest the head psychiatrist at the women's prison, corrections officer Captain Ike Bradshaw, and Angie the up and coming television/movie star who becomes strangely liked to all of the aforementioned characters. It was hard to get used to Moore's style of writing at first because the characters would change after as little as a paragraph, but the characters' voices were so unique and recongnizeable that the abrupt changes began to occur naturally. This is a brutally honest tale of different levels of intimacy between people and ultimately a portrayal of psychological breakdown.

I have learned that I will probably enjoy just about any book Tempestsans passes on to me, so I'm looking forward to this one. I've also been doing my clinical work at a psych hospital recently so a psychosis-related book is very fitting! Thanks again!

I have tried repeatedly to get into this but, for some reason just haven't been able to. It's not fair for this poor book to languish on my shelf anymore so I'll move it along soon.

I decided not to read this book. Mt. TBR is trying to take over the house, so I need to cull the herd. This book is ready to travel.
