Anything else you’d like to say?
Well, with the introduction of electronic reading, I’ve realized it’s time to phase out part of my questionnaire. Also, I’ll have to get more creative about my photos when using the kindle.
About the book? It reminded me of Jonathan Franzen, which was surprising, though now that I re-read my review of that book, I’d have to say this was much tamer. I didn’t feel like any of the characters (except for the deceased) were sympathetic, but the plot had a lot of movement and drama, and I thought it ended with maturity.
