I only finished the book for the sake of following through with it. I wanted to stop mid-way. It's a satisfactory enough book, but it lacked any real impact. Even though the entire book is about Maria, and follows her life, the distance the writer creates through her style of writing hindered any feeling of closeness to the main character. As another reviewer noted, the entire book it comprised of the shortest and choppiest sentences. It was distracting, frustrating and proved to be a major contributer to not feeling close to any of the characters. Imagine, an entire book about Maria, and she's always at an arm's length, causing the reader to feel they have no reason to be invested in her. It was bizarre. I'd suggest picking another book because i really felt like my time could have been spend more wisely.
