I have it on good authority that this is an excellent book. Friends, authors, reviewers that I trust and more often than not agree with have all said so. And I know I wasn't in the best mental space as I read this one. So if I was less than impressed, I tend to believe the fault lies in me as a reader and not the book; I don't trust my own opinion on this one. I could see it was a good book, after all, I just never felt emotionally engaged by it, didn't empathize with the characters or feel what the book said they were feeling. But that's just me. You probably shouldn't trust this review. Go find one of those glowing ones, because they're probably more accurate than mine.
