With most manuscripts, I can easily predict what will happen next--and, what will ultimately happen at the climax of the book. Tsing Lee, however, kept me guessing right up to the end.
I thoroughly enjoyed the character's insights and humor. I also enjoyed the matter-of-fact-ness about the character's voice. The voice remained constant whether Tsing was talking about high-heel shoes or sex. The character managed to go through a number of harrowing and unique events that I couldn't foresee, and yet held firm to that voic. A unique voice is something wonderful in a work of fiction, and the author managed to do this (while making it look easy).
