did not like it
bookshelves: audio-books, just-not-for-me, underwelmed, gave-up-on

I gave this audio book 2 disks. The characters were flat and stereotyped with no assessment behind those stereotypes. While there were occasional brief passages of really beautiful writing or imagery (I enjoyed the observations of the brother in the ichthyology stacks), the writing was oversentimentalized, often listless, and too impressed with its own "plot" -- she uses prolepsis to a fault.I give it a one and a half star because I didn't actively dislike it, just didn't care to finish it.
