Interesting read. Dark, morbid sense of humor. Lampooned Asian and Asian American stereotypes of what Asian women are supposed to be. Deeply disturbing and funny at the same time.

This book was described as "darkly humorous," but mostly it's just dark...and demented. It started out promising as the protagonist is a cheeky, rebellious "good (Asian American) girl gone bad," but Fiona takes "bad" to a whole nother level. "Bad" becomes psychotic. Sorry, too weird for me.

Easy read, interesting characters, dragged a bit in places, enjoyable ending.

A dark comedy set in the Bay Area about a woman who refuses to live the stereotypes of both a docile Asian woman and a happily married Mom. She meets a old school friend at the doctor's office (he is the doctor!) who just happens to be a sociopath and serial killer. Yet, she feels closer to him than anyone else, besides her exasperating parents. The only thing that was truly annoying were the numerous typos in the book. Where was the author's editor!?! Some may find it too dark; some may find it predictable; I found it amusing.
