It was interesting to watch the relationship between Stella and Martin develop. . .Martin seemed the more mature of the two. There are many hints at the personalities and relationships of the other characters, but none is fully developed. The ending is a disappointment; almost as though Ms. Cusk got tired of writing, or is she paving the way for a sequel?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I have two gripes about this book. The first is the author's writing style. There are too many run-on sentences and sentence splices for my taste. Rereading sentences a few times to understand the author's thought is too much labor for a fiction book. Secondly, I have a difficult time relating to the main character. I think Stella could use some assertion counseling. The more I read the less I like her, which makes for difficult reading.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
