I love how this novel argues with itself. It's a novel you read not for plot but for the long, no stone left unturned passages of thought about the potential motivations behind human behavior. Making it all the more rewarding when you discover that, underneath the philosophical debates the narrator has with herself, there are pieces of a plot that feel like an homage to the great Hitchcock films.
