How did this book get so many awards?

It's the most cliched story out there; male writing professor gets involved with his brilliant female student. About fifty pages in (and not getting any more involved), I made a bet with myself. I bet that I could predict where the book was going and save myself the three hours it would take to get there naturally. So I turned to the last forty pages and sure enough...it was exactly where I figured.

It's discouraging that Blue Angel was so revered. I honestly don't get it. But don't waste your time even reading the first fifty pages like I did...you, too, will probably be able to predict what's coming.
