Crush, Candy, Corpse by Sylvia McNicoll
Just finished reading Crush, Candy, Corpse by Sylvia McNicoll and I have to say it was nothing like what I expected. The back of the book doesn't explain just what you have to expect going into this novel.
It is not a romance, it is not a story about finding yourself, it is a story of a court case about a girl who may or may not have murdered an old women because she asked her to. From what I read I couldn't tell whether she did it or not.
But anyway, we meet Sunny who is on trial for the murder of an old women who chocked to death on a candy at the retirement home where she was earning her community hours. We see her flash backs to her time there and how she fell in love with this women's grandson who had promised the old lady that when her disease progressed too far that he would help her commit suicide.
We see her progress with this boy even though she has a boyfriend who is a criminal. It is hard to describe this book because it was all over the place, not in time, but in my head when I was reading it.
In the end I was left with more questions than I had answers, but I suppose it just shows that the book was only meant to be about a court sentence.
It wasn't exactly to my style of reading, but it was still a good book. I have a very specific genera of books I like.
Still I would give this book a 3 out of 5 stars and would certainly say give it a read. It is a short read, so it didn't take up too much of my time, but still worth it in the end.
