3.5 stars.
I didn't love this book. However, I found myself wanting to pick it up and read it whenever I had an extra moment. I enjoyed the book and the character development. I'm not sure it was worth all the hype it got when it was published.

Lormac I heard it compared to one of the Jonathan Franzen books - either "The Corrections" or "Freedom" - what do you think? I liked "Freedom" so I might try this one if it was similiar, but on the other hand, a 3.5 is not a ringing endorsement!

Caroline I would say read it if you have a few days to kill and you have absolutely nothing else you'd rather read. Not that it is bad, I just can't say "Yes! You must read this!" I think you could live your life without having read this book. How's that for an endorsement? ;-)

Lormac Hah! I get it.
