    NOT WORTH IT

    I thought this book had so much potential. I got through about half way & was very confused. I couldn't wait to finish this book.

    Disappointing

    As an avid reader, who loves books, I found this a piece of trash. A waste of time.

    Don't waste your time.

    The recommendations were high, but I couldn't force myself to finish reading this book. The story seemed so far-fetched and there was so much lacking in the story line. I didn't find any of the characters likeable wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

    Throw 'Away' Away !!!

    I just wanted to comment on 'Away.' It's absolutely trash. Comparisons to 'Ragtime' and 'Cold Mountain' are undeserved. 'Away' is a bad Hallmark movie as directed by the Playboy Channel. If 'Away' is what America thinks is good literature, then we have lost our literary soul.

    Stay AWAY from Away!

    With all the hype and reviews, I thought I was purchasing a winner. I had to force myself to get through this book. The almost soft porn parts became tedious. The end left you flat. I plodded though thinking it would get better, but it didn't. A huge disappointment! I normally pass on books to my friends, but not this one!

    I would not recommend this book.

    I have been a member of book clubs and lead them most of my adult life. When I purchase a book I try to commit myself to reading it. This was the first book in many years that I could not finish. I did not relate to the characters, like the characters or see anything in their lives worth learning. The lead - actually the name is forgotten already - did not seem to have any strength of character at all. I finally decided that there are too many wonderful stories out there to waste my time on this one. Harsh, maybe, but nothing drew me in or enticed me to care.
