Read in September, 2007

After a promising start, this book failed to go anywhere. I lost all patience with the annoying main character, and really had no interest in her quest to find "answers" about her sister after awhile. Her naivete grew wearying, and I longed for the ability to reach between the pages and slap her.

Egan has a gift for description, but needs work on her pacing. Perhaps that improved with her subsequent works.

Pam LOL...I also longed to give her a good slap.

Dormilona Me too! I liked the book much better than you did, but my dislike for the main character (until the last three paragraphs, in which I felt real empathy for her) curbed my enthusiasm.(less)
