it was ok
Read from May 25 to July 26, 2012

Eh. I had loved this as a seventeen-year-old so reread it this summer to see what it was actually about. (I didn't remember anything beyond a pretty girl on a diving board). Turns out it is overwritten and underplotted. Definitely a bad choice for an audiobook (even with the inimitable Michael Emerson as the reader) but I don't think I would have enjoyed it that much more on paper. I guess I'm not seventeen anymore, and I guess that's a good thing.
