message 1: by DL (new) - added it

DL I tried to read this one but just couldn't get into it. Can you compare it to something so I can tell if I gave up too soon or if it just wasn't for me?

message 2: by D (new) - rated it 5 stars

D Hmmm. It kind of reminds me of Big Fish. Have you read/seen it? The movie is one of the rare cases that is better than the book. It definitely has a lot of detail. I wouldn't recommend it on audio. The book jumps around to different times but with the same people and it gets kind of confusing. The ebook was a confusing that way too. I think I was 2/3 of the way into it before I figured that out. It's just not the same as being able to flip pages.

DL I just wrote a long and insightful post (lol) and Goodreads told me that it was over capacity and couldn't post it.
After reading most of the reviews on NC, I remember why I never finished. I got swept away by all the detail and never really figured out what the story was. I'm glad you enjoyed it but I don't think I'll be going back to it any time soon.

D lol That's frustrating!
I liked it but it's probably not one that I'll reread.
