…because reading is so personal -- like clothing or food. But I must say this book was a huge disappointment. I have read (or listened to) everything Chevalier has written. I love them all, so it was a big surprise to get one-quarter of the way through this book only to feel like I wasn't going to make it to the end. I did, and it didn't get any better. The story was really awful. I can get through a reader who is not so great, but if the story isn't compelling, there's nothing the reader can do for the book. It's like an actor in a bad play. To be frank, I finished the book this morning and cannot recall if the performance helped the story in any way. It certainly couldn't hurt it.
