Read in March, 2012

Probably more 2.5 stars, mostly on the strength of my love for others of Marilynne Robinson's books, so I've rounded up rather than down. There were flashes of the tone, the writing in general that I really appreciate in Robinson's writing, but as a whole the book never came together for me. I was never really invested in the characters and the story is unrelentingly depressing. I would consider coming back to this sometime to see if it's a case of the wrong book at the wrong time, but for now I'm fairly disappointed.
