Just about half way through this novel, has any one else read it and have any opinions on it?

It's semi autobiographical and the subject matter is dark (depression, loss, suicide, etc). It was the author's only book and she killed herself a month after the book was published.  But nevertheless, it's considered an American literary classic.
