I finally finished this one! That is about the nicest thing I can say for this book. It was full of vile and obnoxious people who think of no one but themselves and wonder why their life is so meaningless and fruitless. I felt so bad for the children that were born into this pitiful cast for they had no chance but to become like their parents. Even from a writing perspective I couldn’t find much to enjoy. The plot jumps around, sometimes a page turn pushes the reader forward 12 years with a very limited view into the happenings during those times and the narration is confusing. But above all, I just couldn’t understand why no one would leave the area to get away from all of the negative past and perpetual drama. It was just all too much for me so much to the point I avoided reading because it was such a downer book!

Rebecca Glad I wasn't the only one! Though I did have some random on Amazon suggest that it was perhaps my low IQ :)
