it was ok
Read from August 28 to September 01, 2012

Okay, I literally forced myself to finish this novel. Time and time again, I had to accuse myself of reverse-snobbism and try and try to view this characters with some empathy. Unbidden, I kept thinking of something my husband says often,"Pretty (sort of) people with pretty problems."

However, these "problems" were not really pretty. Just rather trite and predictable. Have I lived so long I can figure things out? Do I think I know everything? Is it simple jealousy? No, truly not.

This book, to be fair, was fairly easy to get started and I tried to view it as almost a form of research...but after a bit of time, I just flat-out didn't like these people or care much about what they felt or did.

Enough said.
