My picky husband really enjoyed it. He said it would be a good book club read- so I read it too.

This was an interesting read. The book is written from the perspective of 3 people and over 3 different time periods. At first I wished I had been writing out my own timeline to reference when the story hopped along. The book has 2 protagonists who make poor choices. There were sections of the book where I was not rooting for anyone and I felt that loss. At times I wondered, "So why should I care about these people? Why am I reading this?". Even so, the further I got into the book the less I wanted to put it down. The story gained momentum and led me to a lot of inner reflection on nature vs nurture and our odds of success and failure. It also got me thinking a lot about being alone and loneliness.

I also wonder why Oprah did not pick up on this book....
