The character and setting were interesting. Narrator did an excellent job.
Everything in moderation… more is not always better
It was slow and repetitive. They don't get along, we get it, move on with the story. It starts becoming a blah blah blah story. Seems unrealistic that real adults would be fixated like this on fairytales while someone is dying.
Not her fault.
The longer this book went on, the less and less I liked the main character, shrill comes to mind.
It was ambitious, but not my cup of tea. I really did not like the main character and her mother. I did not empathize with them at all. Couldn't wait to finish.
Pat Conroy is a gifted author and has a way with words I generally like. The problem was that I did not like ANY of the characters in this story. I gave up because I did not want to spend any more time with them.
