Read in November, 2011

Picked this one up when I was working at the publisher, and really was just curious about a debut novel that a) took 9 years to write and b) pulled a $600 or $650K advance. I almost didn't get through this one as it barely made it past the "50-page rule." But it turned out to be a very engaging story. Nothing deep, nothing that's going to change a reader's life or make him/her start questioning any of his/her long-held beliefs. It's just a nice story, and I liked the characters, felt for them when they made stupid decisions or suffered setbacks. The style wasn't challenging but had just enough eloquence to give me pause now and again.
