I can't believe so many people rated this stupid Novel 5 or 4 out of 5. I just managed to read it till page 75 and I am already pissed off with the author. Its just about stupid house, shrove, trees, road, grass, wall, painting, WTF?. I wonder if there's anything interesting. Extremely boring to death. Even watching a wall paint dry would be interesting. Avoid it at all cost

Cristina This is one of those subtle books that tells a story through mundanities. It's really not for everyone (and clearly isn't for you). I'd only recommend this to people who care more than character than plot. This book is about unfolding the layers of Eve--and Liza--and that takes time and effort.

I absolutely love this book, but ... definitely not everyone's cup of Earl Grey.
Trine Bradshaw Unfortunately you did not read the last 299 pages. Books have a tendency to get better as they go along. I stand by my 5 stars!
L. Legault Perhaps it's the reader who lacks something, not the writer or the novel.
Kizito I had completed some form of schooling back in the 90's, I was at a relative's home which happened to be a just-moved-in place in the outskirts. There was nothing much to do for a hyperactive person I am, I was going through unopened moving bins I found this book.

I managed to finish it and even got excited at the end but the entire time I was reading it I kept saying, man; this is one boring book. Yes, I still think it is simply too boring. Phew!
