Read from September 22 to October 02, 2011

I was quite disappointed by this book. Perhaps it was because although Isamay claims to be close to her grandmothers, she actually seems to just put up with them. I constantly compared it with my relationship with my Nanna and Grandma, which was truly close...none of the awkwardness that comes across in this book. The constant narrative on her dissertation I found dull, and the climax unsatisfactory. You never really understand what's going on with Ian. Although I think the writing is good, the story isn't. Really struggled to get through to the end...and I think the author did too....the ending doesn't feel like a true ending.
