Mr. Conroy provides some moments that sparkle; most enjoyable were his moments of humor and honesty. I found the review of Gone with the Wind too lengthly. At the end he seemed to get caught in a net of melancholy metaphors; but overall I thank him for the insights. His voice told the story best.
My commute was enriched by this humble concierge and her courage, philosophy and love of beauty.
I grew so weary of the whining of these feckless characters. The book is out of touch with reality; I fail to agree with praise and fanfare. In 20 years the protagonists never make a decision. I found the change of heart and values of the shallow usurping son to be unbelievable. I am a reader who always finishes a book, even a bad one, but I skipped ahead with this one.
