did not like it
Read from July 18 to 23, 2012

I found Zoe to be deeply unlikeable and couldn’t understand why Jack and Kate would remain friends with her, despite their hidden connection. Guess I just can’t root for someone who wants to win at all costs and who uses her grief as an excuse to be selfish. Cleeve didn’t succeed in making me want to forgive her. The cancer sections felt syrupy and manipulative instead of dramatic and Tom's griping about his advanced age made me angry as he's only 6 years older than I am and thinks he's 90. Annoying on many levels.
