    I found this book repulsive, October 22, 2003 Reviewer: Isabeau from Chicago, IL I was repelled by the personality of the book's narrator. My disgust centered on two events: First, when the narrator was a child, she avenged herself on someone she didn't like by filling a raisin box with rodent droppings for her enemy to eat. Later, when she was a grown woman, she avenged herself on a co-worker she didn't like by putting dog dung in the woman's desk drawers. This isn't humor, it's vicious bullying. I don't expect every book I read to be all sweetness and light, but I dislike books that leave me feeling contempt for the characters.
