J.C. Weil has presented characters that make you think, make you angry, and make you wonder about life and about yourself. That's a lot for "a little novel." The female character is self-involved to the max, and thus, decides on an odd, actually several odd, schemes to satisfy, or maybe better put, find her truth. Like my last sentence, only better and more so, the writing is crisp, original, humorous, and filled with amusing metaphors. As Dezzy's experiment advances, wreaking havoc with others' lives, I wanted to be like Dezzy, to have the guts to pull some of her stunts, be totally independent. At the same time, I did not want to be someone who calls her mate Side Meat. Names are important. Dezzy loves her own name which is original and fun. This was a story of a woman who is not, probably, in love, and who isn't interested in making sacrifices for a long-term relationship. Dezzy finds her own needs and desires far more important than, well, everyone's. All of this makes the book enticing. I was caused to think about my own list of wants and methods used to obtain them. I do feel for Side Meat; he needs to do some self-examination. Who does he want to be? I think he will find gobs of love and happiness with someone else. The book is fast paced and entertaining as you learn about both of these interesting people, both lost and looking hard to be found. You will not be bored. Touch of Magenta
