Snow Flower and the Secret Fan
Oh, God. What do I even say about this book? Fascinating look at the brutal lives of women in a remote county of China, compelling relationships between women, whatever. I'm GUTTED. This novel drew me in really quickly and I couldn't even tell you what exactly about it got to me but I became really emotionally invested in Snow Flower and Lily. I finished the book in one night.(show spoiler)
This is worse than I felt about what happened to Jake in the Dark Tower series.
