Read full description of the books:
it took me long enough to finish this one, which says a lot. i'm the person who will willingly give up sleep, food, social interaction and general human-like activities to read a good book.
i really liked kate atkinson's case histories. it's been awhile since i read it, but it left enough of an impression that i was willing to dive into this one with little knowledge of what it was about, or what people thought of it. all in all, it had a very slow start for me. in fact, that was the biggest obstacle - the first 100 pages or so left me unmotivated to continue. once i was in the middle things picked up, but by the end i was just waiting to get to the last page.
i love a good mystery, but something was lacking here. the characters were odd, and not exactly in a good way. things were made needlessly complicated with too many characters, and behind the sheen of the mystery, there was a distinct lack of sincerity in this book that i found in case histories and really missed here. i didn't find myself particularly caring about the secret behind all the seemingly random events that were actually tied together; and without that, there wasn't much to grab onto.
