UGGH. i soooo wanted to just LOVE this book. i was too pregnant to read it when it came out (yes, that was a giant roadblock to being able to read) and then taking care of a baby, but i bought my giant hardcover and waited, so excited to reach the point when it would be time to read it. i started in march and read diligently, a few pages at a time when i could, waiting for the book to pick up speed, infiltrate my life the way a great book does when i'm in the middle of it, make me really care about the characters and what happens next. and then . . . and then it was over. don't get me wrong, it took MONTHS to read, and i was absolutely rooting for it to be the book i wanted it to be, and i just . . . didn't really love it. this hurts me more than it hurts j.fran.
