Apple Tree Yard - Louise Doughty

well, I do love it so far. it's disturbing, it's not designed to put you in the most relaxed, comfortable mood ever--and I'm hooked. I kept thinking things like "this is like a Brit female-perspective version of a David Goodis book--a good one--and that means I'm happy!". anyway, this was one of the few times I happened to glance at some BookLikes patron reactions just before embarking, and saw a half-star review, and I think maybe a two-star pasting as well, and got worried. but we all have our different tastes, don't we? I'm not saying I know for sure this is a 4 or 5 star book for me...but it certainly is heading in that direction at 167 pages...
