Character studies as plot
December 08, 2009
The characters are well written, the conflicts are mostly believable, and the writing style draws you in, but there just isn't much of a story here. If you enjoy character studies then you will like this book, but don't expect much of a serious plot.

This book just didn't get it for me. I am 250 pages into this book and I am going to stop now. Life is short and there are a lot of books out there. I read a LOT of books and very few do I stop before finishing. Poor character development in this book. I still don't care about the characters at all or even feel like I know them. Just seemed like a lot of blah blah blah. A good author can really speak volumes with a few sentences and make you feel like they really "got it". I don't recommend this book.

I thought I would like this book, and to be honest I haven't finished it yet, so it might get better. I was well into it when I put it aside however, and the characters did not seem believable to me at all. All of the convoluted sentences that I thought I would enjoy were extremely tedious. If there is a plot brewing in this novel, it's on slow drip. I'm giving it a "Just ok" because I haven't finished it, and I'm giving the benefit of the doubt...but so far, it's totally thumbs down for me. I reserve the right to change my opinion if I ever finish it!
