Judy Blume says that Swimming is the "most original" book she's read all year. I am SO sorry for Ms. Blume. I bought this book with anticipation based on the publisher's description of it, but finished reading it with great disappointment. It was nothing at all like I had thought it would be. The swimming element is a tiny part of the novel--it deals mostly with an increasingly disturbed person who really is not very likeable at all as an adult. There were huge boring sections and little to make me want to keep turning the pages, although I continued to slog through it. By the end, I was sorry that I'd ever bought the book and that I'd spent the time continuing it. I simply don't see anything exceptional or even pleasing about this book.Was this review helpful?
