The End of Alice, by A.M. Holmes

The End of Alice tells the story of a convicted child molester/murder in prison for life, retelling the story of his victim (Alice) and also telling the story of an admirer who is writing to him in jail.  I was hoping for more out of this one, the book sounded like it might be very disturbing but in the end I found it mostly boring.  Certainly there are disturbing things happen, but for the most part this wasn't a book for me.
Up next is a book my mom sent me titled The Art of Dancing in the Rain.  This one is narrated by a dog, only a couple pages in but I suspect I'll like it, even though it starts with the dog about to be put down.
