bookshelves: unfinished

Slow going. Reminds me of Fannie Flagg's Can't Wait to Get to Heaven so far (although dryer).

I read so many of these books with that 'slowly panning out from the past with the great big horrible secret being oh so slowly revealed for the big emotional impact in the present' type plots that I don't have tons of patience with them any more. Anyone else have this problem? I feel like I, the reader, am being manipulated.

They tend to sell well (book clubs?), so maybe it's just me...

message 1: by Marie (new)

Marie I've occasionally seen it done well, but usually when it's mostly B plot so there's a lot of early focus on the A plot and while it's important they intersect, it's not the author showing off "tee hee, I have a secret, but I'm not going to tell!" which is never worth it.

message 2: by Amy (new) - rated it 2 stars

Amy Couldn't finish the book. It moved way too slow and it was very easy for me to put down. Not a good sign.
