I tried reading this whole book, I really did, but only got about a third of the way through. She has an interesting way of looking at things that did make me think, but the stories were depressing to me, the characters unloveable, and nothing really seemed to happen. Everything was about the character's feelings and perspective, sometimes their emotional journeys - which is all good in moderation - but a whole book's worth? As I read, I found my mind wandering and I kept waiting for something to happen to draw me in. I could probably read this whole book in very small doses - like over a span of a year, but it was a loaner and it's time to give it back to its owner.
