    Just Because You Write One Great Novel It Doesn't Mean You Can Write Another One!

    When I reached 'Part 3' of the book, I thought, finally something will come together. I now have about 50 pages left and am beginning to doubt that anything of much interest will happen. I was away on a trip with not another book to read so I just kept reading. I will finish the book but with not much anticipatation. The characters are shallow and never fully develop. Very depressing and dysfunctional characters in much need of seeking professional help. I felt that the premise of the book could have been a good one if developed properly. But, the plot is thin and stagnant. Am glad that I did not buy this book but was able to take it out from the library. If you feel you still want to read 'Songs Without Words' I suggest you go the same path.

    Anticipation turns into disappointment

    This read was a major disappointment. I had high expectations after Ann Packer's 'The Dive From Clausen's Pier.' 'Songs Without Words' was flat, boring, and entirely predictable.

    Big disappointment

    Having loved the dive from clausen's pier, i was really excited to read something new by ann packer. i couldn't have been more disappointed. after an initially interesting start, the story fell totally flat and i had to force myself to get through the book.

    HUGE waste of time

    i wish i had it in me to stop reading a book once i've started. this book was mind-numbingly horrible. i'm actually angry about the time i wasted reading this book. it seemed just worthless babble to me, i still can't figure out the reason the brother even existed. i could go on forever. save yourself valuable time and stay as far away as possible from this garbage.

    I Couldn't Agree More

    I loved The Dive From Clausen's Pier and couldn't wait to read this. I forced myself through it. The characters just didn't ring true and I couldn't feel much sympathy for any of them, except for the daughter. Don't waste your precious time or money.
