2.0 out of 5 stars I am sad - but happy for those who liked it!, November 21, 2011

This review is from Light from a Distant Star: A Novel (Hardcover)

I have read all of her work. Most of it twice. I sent her my first novel to read, which had been well received by reviewers, and I told her what an inspiration/influence she had been for me. She ignored me - but that was okay; I assumed she was busy creating another masterpiece. But now this book? I don't understand at all. It is not a "To Kill A Mocking Bird" as some have suggested. It was truly a struggle to finish it and I never would have finished it if I did not admire her as much as I do. It saddens me that this book is so weak. I am sure she will recover. All of her other books are so amazing and her characters and stories are always so artfully unforgettable!
