This short, sharp, shock of a book tackles a taboo subject head on. I found it hard not to judge a woman who has everything and risks losing it to feed her addiction. Through the course of the story my opinion of Adèle swung to and fro like a pendulum, mirroring her own internal tussle. Events are relayed in a flat, matter of fact way, yet I also found the writing strangely poetic. A divisive read which compels and repulses in equal measure.
