UPDATE: Finally finished this one. I read books in 3 days; this one took 3 weeks.
The book was just okay...nothing to write home about. No real plot, just the life of a family in 340 pages. I can't figure out why it's called The Smart One because it really wasn't about any one of the characters in particular.
The author is an excellent storyteller though and she only needs to figure out plot to be exceptional.
After more than a week, I am only on page 135 which is the amount of pages I normally breeze through in a day...and I can't figure out why I'm still reading this book. There's no plot. Lots and lots of dialogue but no discernible plot. It's like the book equivalent of a reality TV show.
She does write well, though...which, I guess, is why I'm still reading it.
