it was ok

I wanted to love this book as much as everyone else seems to…but I just couldn’t. It fell flat for me in almost every way - the writing style, the story line, and the main character. I’m not sure I would have finished the book at all except I’ve heard EVERYONE say how much they love it. I kept hoping…and hoping. Finally, about the last third of the book, it began to be interesting to me and redeemed itself as much as it could (giving it the added ½ star). It reminded me of A Man Called Ove - except that main actually was witty, charming, and endearing. I know I’m an outlier for this story, but it was not a book I would jump to recommend.
