it was ok
Read in September, 2011

I was looking forward to reading this book when my neighbor who moved out of the country gave it to me as I really liked The Shipping News and Accordion Crimes. But it was shaping up to be one of the worst books I've ever read until I came across a line that really rang true for me: "There are so many people in the world now that there is not enough elbow room." That sentence, and the somewhat surprise twist at the end, added another star to my review and made it an okay book. At times it seemed as if she was paid per page or per word to write it as most of the descriptions were just interminable.
