Oh dear.

Guess who has a new novel out?

The review at NPR is not encouraging. It sounds like it's basically the exact same book as Hothouse Flower. Which, I know I said that I wouldn't necessarily rule out reading her next book just because I found Hothouse Flower frustrating, but I also don't feel obligated to read the same book again just because she's written it twice. I hope I'm not disappointing everyone terribly.

I'm not sure if I should be amused or annoyed that the main character shares my real name...

I read Hothouse Flower, as well. It was an interesting book, to say the least. This new one does sound the same, but I will probably read it, anyway.

Actually, after reading the excerpt, I probably won't read it.
