    I just finished reading Bastard Out of Carolina and it's hard to stop thinking about. Great book! Tough ending.

    Anyone else read it?

    Don't know whether to hate Anney or feel sorry for her.

    .
    Back when my job was to protect the Boneses of the world, the Annies used to puzzle me more than anything. I couldn't understand for the life of me. I guess it depends on just how much you love/need that man, huh?

    I think it depends more on why they think they love/need that man. I don't know if someone with a realistic idea of their worth, compared to their self worth would do the same.

    No kidding. It was funny when everyone in town looked up smiling and thought of Annie when the courthouse burned down.

    withou it t--no humans
    ..but, it is comes with enormous responsibility = raising a baby responsibly
    ..so, out of wedlock sex ''''should''' be frowned upon......??....
