Die A Little

Die a Little: A NovelDie a Little: A Novel by Megan Abbott

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Megan Abbott is impressive.  The first half of this book is the poster child for "a watched pot never boils."  I almost put it aside.  But I stuck with it after sneaking a peak at the second half.  Abbott's verve with ensnared characters and tawdry drama is impressive enough to make me want to finish a book that doesn't start bubbling until almost a hundred pages in.  A slow boil might have been her aim, but she almost lost me.  Fortunately this one didn't spoil my crushing on a smart, dynamic and prurient writer.
