    My book club chose this book as our most recent book club sele

    My book club chose this book as our most recent book club selection. No one finished it, and all agreed it was the worse book we had ever tried to read. The main characters are unlikable and impossible to relate to. The storyline is murky and unrealistic and the writing is overly verbose.

    Unhooked

    I have read all but 20 pages so far and still don't feel connected to any of the characters. I could leave them at any point in the book without curiosity of what happens to them. Author is descriptive of the places in the book and suporting characters in the book but again the main characters never connected with.

    One of my favorite books of all time

    A delightful book about two sisters and the very different paths they took in live. Beautifully written, and has stayed with me, bits of it, for years now.
