I am enjoying the dialogue between the characters in this novel, but could use a little more description of the characters physically and mentally. We have the story of good girl (Carrie)ruined by evil man (Mr. Camm). Finally, good girl is rejected by good boy(Simon) who she thought would love her through any type of hardship. I am more interested in what makes Mr. Camm tick than in Carrie’s story. Here he is a man with looks and skills around the gambling table; all the women want him and he rapes a child. What makes him such a thorn?
What makes Pearl cheat on a man that loves her? This is an age old story that can be richer if I cared and knew more about the characters.
Well, I am almost through with the book and I am a bit curious about what Carrie decides to do with the baby and what happens to Pearl’s relationship?
Looking forward to discussing the book with the group and also conversing with the Author on November 17th here at the library.
