did not like it
bookshelves: 2009, didnt-finish
Read in June, 2009

I'm having a hard time enjoying this one. The characters are underdeveloped and I feel no connection to them whatsoever. Valerie is unbelievably, annoyingly naive. She's had 7 pregnancies in 6 years (resulting in 5 children and 2 miscarriages), despite the fact that her husband uses condoms b/c he doesn't want to have children. Lol. The storyline just feels very one-dimensional with no depth of emotion to speak of. It's all just words on a page to me about a woman I would like to strangle myself, if her husband weren't already doing so. The best comparison I can make of this author is to Danielle Steele (who I've also tried and failed to like).

I normally dislike starting books without finishing them, but I think I might move on to something else. Maybe I'll just flip through the rest of the book to see if anything interesting happens.
