This book became vapid after the repetitive prose and the lengthy descriptions of what appears to be a disorder, like obsessive compulsive disorder. The main character has tics that are coupled with her mathematical genius. However, it is very hard to feel empathy for the character, who is rather two dimensional and for whom one loses compassion as her actions result in harm to children. This book is not a good read and is not very insightful into people with disorders. I finished the book to see if the end justified the means, but it didn't.

My litmus test for a novel is whether or not it leaves a lasting impression--I don't have to think long to remember I read it. Well, I won't soon forget this book. Really quirky with a set of weird characters, all of whom have some serious issues. I picked it up because of the references to mathematics (loved the Numbers and Materials!), but wound up enjoying the sparse, unusual writing style and simply had to keep reading it even when I wondered why. It definitely isn't for everyone but the ending is surprisingly satisfying. I've also seen different versions of the cover which might make it more appealing.
