Goodnight Nobody: Spoiler

Several of my blog buddies have (smartly) given up on Goodnight Nobody. But in case any of them are interested, I'll post who killed Kitty Cavanaugh in the comments section.

If you don't want to know, don't click on the comments. And if you do click on the comments, don't gripe to me later that I gave away the ending. Because at that point, you are just stupid. And I can't be responsible for your stupidity.

Sukie did it. Which was extremely annoying, because the leaps of logic that the narrator had to make to decide that Sukie was the killer involved Olympic-level gymnastics. But, apparently, Sukie had once dated Kitty's husband and Kitty stole him away from Sukie. And Sukie has carried a torch for all these years. And somehow, Kitty finding the identity of her long-lost father meant that Sukie had to kill her so that the husband could get the insurance money and he and Sukie could live happily ever after. And I can't even write coherent sentences to explain this because it doesn't make any sense.

Now, I like surprise endings, but only if I can then look back and see the thread that led to the ending and smack myself for not realizing it. There was no thread to this.

Oh, and Kate, the narrator, takes her kids to go stay indefinitely at a house in Cape Cod and it isn't really clear whether she is going to go back to work or if she is going to divorce her husband. The whole thing was very tacked on and weird. And I can't explain this well, either, because Jennifer didn't explain it well. Or, really, at all.

And, in case you were wondering, Kitty's real father is the President of the United States.

I can't remember now who Sukie is... one of the mommy friends?

Kitty's father is the POTUS? Okay, now I'm even more happy that I didn't finish this one.

Jennifer, what happened?? *sob*

Yeah. Exactly. Sukie was like a noncharacter and the only reason she stood out for me is that I love Sookie on Gilmore Girls.

But, yeah, she was a Mommy.

I think Sukie was only in one scene that I read...when Kate sees the 3 alpha mommies in the park, near the beginning.

Oh well, I hope her next book is a return to form ;)
