I love your comparison to the Wheelers :). There are definitely similarities between these two couples. All that pent up frustration. I find Walter incredibly pathetic. Maybe Clara thinks the same way, too?

Maybe. And what's with Walter's references to Clara's jealousy and ambition?

That's the thing, tho, we are about 30 pages in and there is already a lot of messed up going on. Some books don't even manage to set the scene in 30 pages...

Since everything is told from Walter´s perspective, I haven´t grasped Clara´s character yet either.

Highsmith is the Queen of messed up characters :). She isn´t squeamish showing the worst of people and she doesn´t beat around the bush.
