did not like it
bookshelves: couldn-t-read
Read from May 06 to 07, 2010

I've read two of Robbins' works and enjoyed them, not immensely, but enough to be willing to dive into a third-especially on the recommendation of a friend. 207 pages into a 337 page novel I just couldn't take it anymore... the book had still not gotten to the "point" and I was screaming for some sense, some plot, some structure, a character I could like... anything to make me WANT to read the book and not feel like I was picking it up out of some sense of obligation.

If one enjoys Robbins writing style then I'm sure they'd enjoy this book... if one has never read any of Robbins books don't start with this one. Ask someone who is a fan which is the best for the uninitiated to cut their teeth on.

Cheryldee Huddleston Again with the "point" ... as a writer, and a reader, it's just never something that I worry about ... I'm too in the moment with Robbins' writing to think about structure. Hmm ...
