it was ok

This was the first book I've read by Tim Winton. He's a good storyteller, and I would read something else by him in the future -- but not about this subject. I am easily bored and annoyed by fiction about marriages breaking up, relationships, etc. I would have stopped reading, but I thought maybe there would be something else going on later in the story beyond the unsatisfied wife leaving and the husband/father falling apart. Life is too short and there are way too many other interesting and thought-provoking subjects out there to read yet another relationship story. Also -- I know today's 6- to 7-year-old is much more worldly than I was at that age, but some of the daughter's thoughts and speech did not seem realistic for someone of that age.
