I picked this up for bookclub. I never would have picked it up otherwise. I never really got into it. The entire time I was reading it, I kept getting like I missed something. I eventually looked up the summary online, and found that I wasn’t missing the major points, but that the book was just wordy.
A lot of the people in bookclub loved it, and it seemed to be the wordiness that they enjoyed, as descriptive as it was. It was a turn off to me. I. Would only recommend this to someone who had a lot of free time and enjoyed poetry. It was not the book for me, though.
