Lacking Somewhat But Still A Decent Read
One of my favorite books of the past twenty years or so has been the Bridges of Madison County but I went into reading this particular story knowing that I probably would not have the same experience. I was correct. There is far too much devotion to tedious details, which greatly damage the pace that this story needs to keep it continually interesting. Also, there is a stifling air to the book that invades the picturesqueness of the background that did not occur in ¿Bridges.¿ However, there are redeeming qualities for this title. Gally and Susanna were wonderful characters that I really enjoyed getting to know. Also, the central theme is not exactly an original one, but does have its moments¿. The central character is also not without merit and has become a memorable one in a rather uninspired story. If you are looking through online reviews for the next great book to read, then read the awesome ¿Anna¿s Trinity¿ by Howard Cobiskey. I am still stunned by its enduring power.Was this review helpful?
