it was ok
Read in September, 2012

Looks like I'm in the minority here in my feelings about this novel, which I found maudlin and trite in tone and scattered in its focus. The dialogue was stilted...hate when an author gives characters lines that aren't normally spoken because the sentences are either too long or poorly constructed. I like reality. Another thing I didn't like were the overabundance of stupid similes. And if I had to read about the 'odd look in someone's eyes' one more time I was about ready to toss the book across the room. And who is newly married and so barraged (is that a word?) by everyone's accounts and references to the former dead wife? That was just too unbelievable. I would give this a star and a half at best if I could.
