A very aptly titled book: Sebold has the lovely bones of a story but fails dismally to flesh them out, with the result being the reanimated corpse of a book that lurches along at a zombie's pace. Many of the characters are obnoxious, the narrator is precocious, and the book made me laugh out loud in all the wrong places.
Everything was very lovely, but it wasn't good. It was just cloying.
