Upon reading the back of the book, I thought, 'What an interesting idea, I'm sure it will be wonderful'. I was fooled! This book is so boring that it is painful to endure. The lack of dialogue makes the book very bland and tedious. Max Tivoli's life was dull and sad. He made nothing of himself and even his romance was lame. The book would have been more interesting if the author would have allowed that the character take more chances and develop a more riveting plot. It was so tiring to read the same sob story page after page.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

great idea that falls flat
At first glance, the idea of the story of a man who grows younger instead of older, seems very intriguing. However, the story you have in your imagination is better than the author dreamed up. The novel is supposed to be a love story to Alice, but the reader isn't given enough Alice to fall in love with; and Max seems just as flat. I felt I was growing substantially older waiting for this book to end!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
