Barbara My book club read this book and also wanted to like it, but couldn't quite. Some of us felt like we were somehow missing something, that there must be more to the book than we were getting. A couple people even tried to read it a second time to figure out what they were missing. The concensus of the group was that there just wasn't something there to get. The book had interesting elements but they didn't lead to insights or even a coherent theme.
