it was ok
bookshelves: angst, historical-romance, read-in-2012, the-big-mis

The book is an extended meditation on two characters who have done nothing but big- and little-mis themselves for seven-odd years of marriage. While I normally do eat this stuff right up (discovering the person you've married is not who you've assumed them to be = rad = sooo excited about Sherry Thomas's uncoming book) here the narrative structure is boring as dust. Long pages of maundering- perhaps I've misjudged him/her. Maybe he/she is not the grim hater/flighty whore I've always thought him/her to be... followed by, naaaah, I'm sure I'm just imagining things. Rinse, repeat. Several times. Snooze. Which is too bad, because I adored the angst here- I just wish it had been better executed.
