Just the title alone scared me off, but I devoured it, too!<quoted text>
Now it's one of my favorites but Curlie is the one who convinced
me to read it in the first place.
Same goes for, Water for Elephants~~he bought it thinking I'd
like it, told him probably not, he read it and couldn't put it
down. Soooooo, I read it and loved it!!!
Did you ever read Snowflower and the Secret Fan? That's another good one.
