This Sweet Sickness - Patricia Highsmith well, compulsive reading is the key -- i read it all day and didn't stop until the end. her characters often have this fascinating control freakiness about them, and david kelsey is no different. he didn't seem as intelligent as tom ripley, though kelsey is a scientist, and that's usually equated in my mind with mental dexterity but i think that's because he's not as good as projecting what could happen and the steps that he needs to take to prevent it. but then again, ripley is a seasoned and fluent liar while kelsey is impatient and monomaniacal in his desire for his dream bride annabelle. people seem to die so easily in highsmith. :)
