bookshelves: borrowed
Read in August, 2012

Okay, I wanted to like this book - it was about a therapist, so it should have been right up my alley. But I got about 1/3 into it and I just thought, "This book is not doing anything for me, why am I wasting my time waiting for this to get better?" So, I stopped. It started out well enough - therapist skiing, stumbles across a man trying to kill himself, she stops him takes him home, starts "therapizing." Then things shift to her guilt about her life and the reader loses track of the man and the intricacy of that relationship and moves into "when I was young I did something I have a lot of guilt for therefore I shall moan about it forever." Urgh. So, it could have gotten better, I don't know. But for me, it wasn't better fast enough.

Valerie It's a good thing you stopped reading it. The ending was not an ending. The story just...stopped. It's the same the whole book through.
