Format: Paperback
Imagine, if you will, what the offspring of Sandra Tsing Loh (or Amy Tan) and Chuck Pahlaniuk might be like. Imagine their daughter had a law degree and chucked it to write crime fiction, but kept the stiletto heels and Prada.

You've just imagined both Angela S. Choi and her debut novel's protagonist, Fiona. Except Fiona chooses not to write crime fiction, but to abet crime itself, in a very strange way.

This is a pithy and entertaining read. Fi is not an adorable, likeable character, not a Hello Kitty (all cuteness, no mouth, no threat, no will of her own), but a smart and sassy woman who knows what she wants -- and, more importantly, what she does not. The story concerns her unorthodox but ultimately successful quest to achieve both ends in her own prickly way.

Her partner in crime, Sean, is less well-drawn and never quite comes alive, but perhaps he doesn't need to. While Fi describes him as the love of her life, it's obvious that she doesn't mean this in the conventional or romantic sense: he's her ultimate anti-fashion accessory, and on that level he's just what the doctor ordered (and yes, he's a doctor). His job is not to fulfill or complete her, but to wedge her out of the role in which she has felt trapped, as is, perhaps, hers for him.

Ultimately, this book is about getting stuff out of one's system. Now that Choi has gotten some stuff out of hers -- her obvious distaste for Chinese culture and for the way in which deliberate singles are viewed -- I look forward to seeing what she comes up with next, for she shows a great deal of promise. Next!

I was intrigued first by the title, and then by the blurb. I was smitten with the writing on the first page and by the 12% mark, knew I'd finish the book in one sitting.

I absolutely loved this story. It's dark and snarky and wrong and witty and clever and perfect if you enjoy true crime/horror genres (think "Dexter"), wondered about Chinese culture, or questioned your own role(s) as a female.

Angela S. Choi is now on my auto-buy list.

This book definitely gets an R rating (sex and violence both). Interesting story about a woman who's tired of having to be everyone's ideal (and tired of being set up on dates by her parents). After running into an old friend from school, she develops a new ... uh... hobby? Killing.
Funny in parts, uncomfortable in parts ... enjoyable if not taken too seriously.

Sorry, I am not very good at this!

But I really did like this book. It is very different, and in a good way.

It is enjoyable, fun to read, and totally unpredictable.

And it is well edited, I saw no errors at all

Good job, thank you!

This novel was unusual and compelled me to read it to the end. I'm still not sure how much I liked it but it caught my attention to the last page. It was a fascinating read, and I'm still pondering it after reading three other books.

The premise of the book is entertaining and will feel somewhat familiar to anyone who enjoys the dark humor and alternative moral code of Dexter and the earlier Heathers, and at times the book is a real page turner. However, at times the execution of the concept is lacking. The characters are rather flat, and several scenes, including one a feather boa, feel forced, crude and unbelievable.

I can't help but think that with better editing on part of the publisher, this could have been a much better book. It is an interesting first novel from a new author, though, and I look forward to reading more.

What a different, crazy, cool story to read. The protagonist (Fiona) is an asexual young Asian woman sociopath giving her cold views on the world. Her best friend (Sean) is a serial killer white man whom she's known since grade school and their dialogue/world views are immensely interesting to read.

"The sweet smell of death. Thick, toxic, intoxicating. It made me giddy. It gave me weak orgasms."

He was the product of an abusive home with an overly sexual mother and she has overbearing parents who want to marry her off to the first Asian guy who shows any sort of interest whatsoever. Her father refuses to take no for an answer and she can't seem to get him off her back, so he puts her on blind dates every weekend that always seem to come up missing afterwards only to be found dead later. O_o Accidentally...

The story is laced with Chinese ways/rites/superstitions that she follows or has thrust upon her by her father. For instance, he pressures her into a date with a guy, she says no but he wears her down, then tricks her into an overnight camping trip with the guy (she thought it would be a couple hours hanging out) and because she went overnight with him (she was trapped out in the wilderness, thanks dad!), it meant that she was engaged to the dude and they started setting up her wedding. WTF? So of course she and Sean have to get her out of that situation....some way.

The "Hello Kitty" referenced in the title is in regards to the soft, docile, clawless, cute, mouthless (voiceless), stereotype that many want Asian women to fall into.

Fiona, however, doesn't want marriage, hates children, nor any of the traditional things that her family wants for her.
