Betsy Fasbinder Betsy Fasbinder said: " I tried. I really did try to love this book because I'd read so many wonderful reviews of it. But alas, I used my 100 page rule (that's the one where I give a book 100 pages before I quit, and in this case I read far more than 100 pages) and still, I ...more"
