Thoughts: Too many parts of this highly dreary novel just did make sense, including the premise of writing diary entries to Jane Eyre, which actually has very few parallels, and all in the very beginning. Also, there was one chapter that I could have excused for its indecency if it further the plot or even had any bearing on the rest of the story.

Why Read?: For Fun
Thoughts: This books is designed to make you feel off-kilter, which I believe is what Choi was going for, and it definitely makes you ponder a lot at the end, but there still seemed to be something missing to make me enjoy it.
