J.S. it seems there is a growing number of us who have been or are disappointed by the book. It's too bad, really. There was such potential there for something quite good.

I'm finishing up the final two chapters of this book and it's nice to see that I'm not alone in my feelings for this book. It receieved such good reviews that I was wondering if perhaps I was missing something or that perhaps I wasn't reading as "critically" as was supposed to be. I'm forcing my way through to the end but I must say that I'm very disappointed. I expected so much more.

Dorothy, in our critique of the book, could we say we were reading like writers? ;) Genevieve, I had that naughty thought too. I've got the Smiley book but haven't cracked it open yet as I have heard that it contains lots of spoilers. I hadn't thought of dipping though. And thanks for your nice compliment! :) Lesley, don't let me turn you off from the book. It does have some good stuff in it, just don't embark on your reading of it with high expectations. Deb, ditto to you what I said to Lesley. If you don't already own it and decide to read it, check it out from the library that way if you don't like it you aren't out the cash.

Oh drat! I had heard of this book and was tempted to get it for my Spring Reading Challenge. I think I'll look around for another option.
