This was another meandering book. It wasnt superbly interesting, but it was a sweet little story at the beginning which turned realistically tragic near the end. I loved the character of Alexandra, which surprised me since I tend to be literarily attracted to more imaginative characters and Alexandra is very down to earth and described as having no imagination. I didnt care for Marie or Emil, mostly because I cant really relate to people who are constantly happy or constantly depressed. But Alexandra was beautiful as a character. The story was good, and managed to surprise me a little at the end, but I can see why people describe it as anti climactic.
