1000 Books In 10 Years; Vol. 97: The Rise Of Life On Earth, by Joyce Carol Oates

The protagonist, Kathleen Hennessy…. CRAZY!!!! Reminds me of an exgf of mine. Seriously though, great book. Its frenzied pace allows you to build up sympathy for a victim quickly, only to peel away layers of the narrative that expose the protagonist as a culpably, vengeful person who remains, nonetheless, sympathetic and relatable. The narrative, like the protagonist, is simple and complex at the same time, and both have left my head spinning.
