it was ok
bookshelves: 2011, book-club, seattle
Read from August 09 to September 02, 2011

I wanted to like this book, but I found it painfully long, and it wasn't until I was at least halfway through that I began to care at all for any of the characters. There isn't much in the way of story, either; it's completely character driven, and generally feels like nothing is happening. I did grow more fond of Quick and Rose as the book wore on, and the end was strong. If I hadn't been reading this for a book club, though, I wouldn't have gotten through the first 25 pages.
