it was ok
Read from March 22 to April 09, 2010

I must have missed something because I just expected so much more from a Pulitzer Prize winning book and Doris Lessing. I loved the premise of this. The whole re-inventing your parents life story was so intriguing! This is really two separate novellas and while I found the beginning of the first novella engaging by about the middle I was struggling to finish it. The 2nd novella I just found tedious and honestly just never finished it.

Maybe some day, when I'm older and smarter I'll go back and re-read it to see if there was something I missed.
