Read in November, 2005

At first, I didn't care about any of the children in this book, and by the end, I mostly hated them. This book was dull and disappointing, with an ending that made me furious. But this was also one of those books that, after glaring at it for a few day and letting it soak in, I realized it accomplished it's goal. It evoked something in me, at least, in the end. Though the cover and synopsis might lead you to believe otherwise, this is no beach read. But the fact that I read it over a year ago and still can't stop talking about it should tell you something.

Rebecca i'm surprised that you rated this book as a 3 if you hated it so much... ^^;


Henry Le Nav I understand your comment completely. Anne Tyler has an amazing ability to bore you to death and then you spend weeks thinking about the weird characters. Excellent review.
