    Jules was originally Julie, but changed her name for some reason... the book is getting some buzz because of her Hollywood connections and the fact that it's centered in that world - which is part of the problem I had with it. I don't have much interest in that world, I didn't know who she was or who her husband is (Steven Soderbergh is the director of Traffic, and the Oceans 11 franchise, none of which I've seen). But it ended up a very dark book, which I like.

    The thing is, when you read a lot like I do, after a while so many of the books just become a blur. I can remember if I've read the thing or not, and if I liked it or not, but sometimes not much more than that. The books that I can remember more, the plot, the characters and so forth, I just feel like that must mean something special. Those memorable books are the ones that often end up on my favorite books of the year list. (Not this one though.)

    Thanks for the heads up on this novel. I had never heard of the author. Practical question: Jules... is a woman?
