Quick thoughts as I start this book: Carol has established her main character's voice so incredibly well really by the end of the first scene. Though, because I am slow, it took me until halfway through Chapter 2 to realize just how amazingly well it was done. That's when it dawned on me how clearly the dialog and actions and thoughts of the main character were pouring out of the page and into my brain. And I think I'm on page 12. This takes amazing talent and skill, ladies and gentlemen.
So go buy the book. That is all.
