it was ok
Read from June 22 to 27, 2012

This was one of those books that did nothing for me from page 1. A premise of what I consider dissolute behavior, regardless of who the person is/ was, is a huge turn off to me. So, the main characters spend the rest of the novel trying to justify leaving their families for their own selfish pursuits. Neither of their personalities or interests ever even captured my remotest empathy. The book was just a drudge to me. Frankly, sadly, the most interesting part of the entire book to me was the unfortunate climax of the book. I would be interested in seeing Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture, but that's about the extent of my interest in his life.

Steven Dzwonczyk That is the problem with a lot of biographies, isn't it? To achieve great things often times the person has to neglect the small, and arguably important, things in life. I find myself losing a lot of "heros" once I read their story. (James Stewart, as an example).

Susan Yeah, James wasn't exactly who I expected, but I've read so many worse , that he wasn't bad. Sidney Portier had me going good until the end, when clearly he thinks he godly. Harry Belafonte--way too righteously arrogant! "Elizabeth R[egina]", I now love.

Karah I feel the exact same way!
