Read full description of the books:
Giron really did a good job with this story of a young woman who descends into madness. the story's presented as the main character's diary.Abigail first seems like a somewhat eccentric but moderately likable young woman living in the big city – but from the beginning, there are few things that are strange about her. Like the skeleton she has in her apartment – an art piece – right? And the crazy, over-the-top sex with her male and female partners.pretty soon though, it becomes clear that something is very wrong with Abby. Very, very wrong. The quintessential unreliable narrator, soon you can't tell what is real in Abby's life and what is not. she becomes obsessed with a regular customer at the bar where she works, following him and sneaking around in his apartment when he's not home, determined to get him to notice her. Pretty soon she gets involved in her first (?) Murder, a killing in self-defense – right? And her collection of macabre skulls and bones begins to grow in her apartment as the body count rises and things get more and more surreal.
My biggest problem with the book was that I wasn't sure if it was realistic – could one person in New York really get rid of so many people in her life and not get caught? All these bodies in her apartment – yes, it frequently talks about her boiling cinnamon and doing things other things to hide the smells, and all the different techniques she learned aboutto preserve the bodies, but you would have to think it would be quite a smell after a while. You just can't keep bodies in an apartment without stinking up the building. So I'm really unsure if such a thing could actually happen – although I know stranger things have happened in New York City – and she may have lived in one of the areas were neighbors just don't really call the police on other neighbors. But it's strange that the landlord never kicked her out, and that the police never put together the fact that people around her were disappearing. So the main problem was realism.
I like how the diary was found in the end and we get a little bit of an independent reality check in the form of the nameless person who discovers it – we're not sure which one of Debbie's friends from the bar it was. But she described Abby is seen from the outside – and casts a different light on some of the scenes in the diary.
Overall this was really a powerful book – well written definitely, the story of a woman's full and complete insanity and the horrible consequences it has on the people around her.
