it was ok
bookshelves: audio-version

I don't usually do this, but I am abandoning this book after getting about 1/3 of the way through. I just cannot get into it. I do not like the characters (particularly Dianna-ugh), and I am finding it tiresome and, well, boring. The descriptions of people, food, clothing, etc. seem cliched and don't ring true. (How can someone smell like unlit matches?) It's possible that the story will pick up and improve as it progresses, but I doubt it, especially after reading some of the reviews here. Sorry, Jennifer...I have really enjoyed some of your other books (especially Little Earthquakes), but this one does not work for me.
