We beat the Valentine's crowd by getting to the Dallas Sushi Zushi at 5pm. There's no need to fear for parking since there are garages all over this bustling corner of McKinney Ave. At Sushi Zushi, Kristen and I were a overwhelmed with the pages and pages of choices in the menu. Natalie, who picked the place, knew exactly what to get, and Robert had his options shortened to the vegetarian and vegan pages--which boast substantial options compared to most restaurants. The tempura ice cream was too bready, but everything else tasted great. Kristen and Robert were in a partying mood: she had mojitos and he had a small--wait, no--huge glass of beer. Natalie, who'd already been naughty till 3am this morning, settled for water and soda.
It's difficult to say more without giving plot points away, but I found the ending oddly satisfying in its ambiguity. Certain questions go unanswered or buried within our 1st-person narrator's limited intuition and crumbling reliability. Though Philip as much as reveals his tale in the first chapter, du Maurier keeps you guessing at the outcome with her clever twists and turns.
Natalie says du Maurier's Rebecca is still a little bit better, but all of us really enjoyed this one.
