Wow. This book left me breathless. A visceral experience, I had to put it down at times because I was blushing and squirming too noticeably. AM Homes is frighteningly talented. She has a real gift for writing about the truly grotesque in beautiful, touching prose. You don't know whether to smile or to grimace. Read it for the story. Read it for the writing. Read it for the experience!

Homes's depiction of a vile pedophile gives one insight into this ghastly creature's core of being. She realistically portrays his victims as the innocent, adolescent, but sexual-beings which we all are at one time. What a disturbing tale of how someone, defiled by their genetics & environment, preys upon youth & innocence as vengance for their own sorrow.

I can't decide whether or not to reccommend this book. I absolutely could not put this book down, was hypnotised and fascinated by it, moved and disgusted, sickened and touched. If Lolita scared you, don't go there. But if you were mesmerized by Humbert's perversity and sickness, you may be able to make it to the grisly end. Good luck, and thank you, A.M.

The End of Alice was just one of those books... it was hard to swallow but I still wanted to nevertheless. The vivid scenes that were depicted put knots in my stomach but I was always intent to go on and besides, it was made interesting conversation on the transit.

What Homes lacks in style, she makes up for in substance. Substance too real for some. Only those who don't want to believe that "sexual predators" exist among our ranks will cringe; the others should applaud such brave insight.
