"Closer" is no "Dope"

Don't bother. Really. Sara Gran wrote one of my favorite books of 2006, "Dope", which was a great noir novel featuring an ex-addict who's now a con. It was a slim book that really stuck with me so I thought I would try this one. Yeah, no. The "Rosemary's Baby" slant with an inordinate amount of violence was not that entertaining. Plus the humor mixed into the story seemed wholly inappropriate. I was checking this one out for our novella group since it only runs 192 pages. Sorry - others have done demon possession much better.
