Read from December 25 to 27, 2010

I really wanted to love this book- and in places I did. But every time the story started to sweep me along, the author indulged in overblown and unnecessary descriptions or launched into rambling musings that weren't always very interesting. Often I could have put this book down and not returned to it. The time shifts weren't always smooth and some scenes just didn't work for me. Plus I couldn't reconcile the young and old versions of the central character. But I'm still glad I read this book, There were scenes that were wonderfully moving and will stay with me. But the novel should have and could have been so much better.
