did not like it
bookshelves: didn-t-finish
Read from February 10 to 16, 2010

Seems I am not finishing quite a few right now. I must be going through a hard-to-please phase, though I didn’t notice it.

I picked up this one because my aunt had picked it for her book group, and she really liked it. I found it to be very slow. And I didn’t really care about the characters. And it was slow. And I’m not really a big fan of the “I have to marry money to save the family” plot. And it was slow.

I had it with me while I was stuck at the car repair place. I got more than a hundred pages in, which is a third of the way through the book. I decided that since I still didn’t care about the characters, and I was more than past Nancy Pearl’s guidelines, I would read the last chapter and call it a day. Which I did.
