Myra I'm having a really hard time getting into this one. :(

Tara Did you end up finishing it or did you have to give up? It's an interesting idea for a novel, but perhaps the writing doesn't live up to the ambitious premise?

Myra I've shelved it for a while. It's just not keeping my attention. I'm going to cruise through the other books on my list and then attempt it again when I'm done with all the others. Many people have loved this book, but I'm having a problem seeing what the big draw is. :(

dreamer You need to get through the first 100 pages and after that, it's worth it.

Myra Thanks, Lesley. That gives me some hope. I just checked it and I'm only on page 82. I'm going to try it again after the next batch of books that I'm getting ready to read. :)
