I have a difficult time NOT finishing books, no matter how bad. But life is too short to waste on bad books. The intro to this book lead me to believe I was going to embark on exciting tale about a mysterious culture and intriguing characters (much like that of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil). However, it instantly fell short with its boring, tediously detailed writing (each chapter is basically a biography of each character). It also fell short with it's subject matter. The real people being written about were not only boring, but self-centered, materialistic, & down right awful people. Its really hard to get motivated to read about people I don't give a hoot about (and at points, detest). So, I finally had to throw in the towel and I think my life is better for it.
