Crazy is as crazy does.
I am about halfway through Alice Hoffman's new book, The Story Sisters.
I have reached the following two conclusions:
1) The eldest sister is batshit crazy, perhaps driven there by a horrific event in her past or perhaps born that way. Hard to say. But she's beyond disturbed; she's deranged. Possibly psychotic.
And there's only so much magic you can wrap "deranged" and "psychotic" in before you just start looking a little silly.
2) I am beginning to wonder if anyone in this book makes it out alive.
Will keep you posted.
