Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There’s something stirring about the ending, even if I don’t really understand it.

It’s cool the way we gradually realize that centuries have passed and the protagonist has not been human in a while.

Con: Long jaw, bald head, and scaly ears? Is it a space alien? Why did it think it used to be a housewife? The location definitely seems to be Connecticut.
