Lou Sytsma I agree. The book is very good but there was a lot of repetition of thought. 100 pages could be cut and the book would be tighter and better for it. Probably pushing it to brilliant.
Noel Heberling The descriptions you don't seem to appreciate are what make this book brilliant. Not only does she accurately describe complex emotions, but she does it in brilliant and unique prose. If you don't enjoy brilliant writing, perhaps you should try something less complicated. Perhaps you would like the Twilight series.
Eleanor Perkins No. I can't agree. The fuzzy thoughts were the post traumatic stress of his tragedy in action. I could have read another 800 pages of the writing of this depth. Maybe I am a glutton for punishment. Eleanor
