"Oh, Billy," she said, opening her door. "Don't hate words. Hate the people who misuse them."Overall, I found the book engaging and its premise fascinating, despite the fact that the narrative sometimes seemed to be backtracking.
Random Thoughts: What happened to the character of Tommy? He seemed so present and mysterious in the first half of the book, and then appeared only briefly in the second act as an ex machina character to move the plot along.
Why didn't Billy and Mona ever pursue the question of where Mary Anne went after she left Samuelson?
I doubt I will ever open a dictionary and not think of this book.
