I completely agree with you. Very unimpressed with the book and think that your 1 star is more than generous. I couldn't even complete the book and that rarely happens! I was expecting so much more with all the rave reviews out there. I feel ripped off.

Though I respect what you have to say as for the book not being of interest to you, I urge you to look deeper for meaning you say you were unable to find. I thought the book was okay, but it had its moments and definitely made me ponder a few points.

While simple, it really has a lot of meaning and depth regarding the power of knowledge and the value of the individual.

So glad to see I'm not the only one miffed by this book and its over night success.

Maybe it's selling because it's a story and nothing more?
