Rose Mary Walls describes herself as an excitement addict for the first time on page 93. Throughout the novel we hear this phrase from Rose Mary at the most disturbing times. How is her excitement addiction comparable to the drinking of Rex in the devastation it causes and the disappointment in the kids? For me I didn't like the mom more than i disliked the dad because of her excitement addiction and so I was wondering if anyone else had the same observation or if they disagree.
