I am sure this book is a worthy read, but after plodding through fifty pages I can only say I feel no need to keep going. I don't feel anything for any of the characters, and don't know what else is of interest. Surely there is something to learn about the development of the modern novel and character development, but it's a lesson I will have to live without.
