Th Immediately after I picked up this book, I had a good feeling. The huntey is told through the different vignettes of Madison going back to the moments when she lost a a particular item.
Well, I chewed this one up and spit it out! Its not even a scary book! Humor and sadness weave in and out.
Madison thrives on these objects and memories. This is one of the best novels I have read in recent memory. It was a tad too dramatic, and ridiculously sad and needless.
