Something that makes Dorothy so unforgettable is the harsh, blunt language she uses throughout the novel. She doesn't once shy away from the brutality of her crimes, or of the inherent messiness that comes with the evisceration of one's life. Pun intended. She's cold and calculated, looking at the people around her as prey; as toys to be used for sex or sustenance or both. At its core, A Certain Hunger explores what happens when a woman will go to any lengths to sate herself...burned bridges (or corpses) be damned.

Frankly speaking i couldn't get into it the first time i started it but then i decided to give it a second chance, simply because i wanted to like it. the first third of the book was quite hard to get through, there was close to no murder and the main character loves men too much for my liking so it was kind of a torture to read about all of her men-related experiences. then, i somehow became more interested when the interesting part started and by the end i almost loved the book. it was still not as great as i expected but there were some splendid quotes that i enjoyed. and we love an independent woman, even if she was Not A Good Person
