I couldn't go to sleep last night, and The Sugar Queen was within reach. Even though I had signed off on it, I needed something to settle my brain for a few minutes.
I opened to a random page, read a few lines, and nearly heaved this library book against the wall.
Josey went to her purse on the chaise lounge and took out her checkbook.
I dislike books that contribute to the dumbing down of our language.
Of course, by then I was angry and even more awake, so I skimmed through some more of the book until I finally discovered the big secret. Oh, give me a fucking break! The main character, Josey, couldn't figure out that(show spoiler)
I guess maybe this sort of nonsense appeals to readers, since the author is very popular. It doesn't appeal to me. I'm glad I only wasted a half hour on the rest of this book.
