    1. I definitely enjoyed this book, but in an uneasy sort of way. Perfidia is a somewhat depressing tale, but a very realistic one, and both an interesting and compelling read.I found the ending a bit unsatisfying, but that didn't make me dislike it--on the contrary, after a few minutes of thoughtful, somewhat stunned and not-necessarily-happy contemplation, I decided I preferred it that way. Life is like that sometimes, I guess, whether we like it or not.


    2. I hated this book - it was dark, depressing and coming from a totally different familial background I have a very hard time understanding why people just don't leave such terrible situations and how they get so wound up in needing love from someone who obviously is unable and unwilling to give it. I know that this story rings true for many people - but for me, it's just too sad to allow your life to be shaped by such anger.


    3. this book is a tail of how one girls mother can turn to hate her daughter for something she had nothing to do about, in the end the witch of a mother tries killing her daughter with a broken beer bottle but has it turned on her to summon her death





    4. I found myself absolutely fascinated by the twisted relationship between Maddy and her mother, who were both perfectly realized.


    5. I read Rossner's Looking for Mr. Goodbar years ago and loved it.This is also a very dark tale, equally well told and equally moving.
