This was one novel I was unable to finish. That's not to say it was terrible, it just didn't interest me. I found it to be fairly boring and much more of an introspective story than having a solid plot. I read roughly the first 100 pages and then gave up and skipped to the end to see if that would entice me to continue the story. Unfortunately it didn't, but I think this is one of those books that just was not a match to what I want from a story. If this novel sounds intriguing to you, I encourage you to pick it up and give it a fair shot, but for me it just wasn't what I had hoped.
