I did something I don’t usually do. When I could not decide early on, whether to continue, I went and read some reviews on the book. A good percentage of them said that Ruth’s chapters were the best. I was currently reading Ruth’s POV and was not impressed. As I was about to give in, I came upon a George chapter, it was a little more interesting. This lead me to try a chapter by Charlotte. Again, a bit more interesting. But ultimately, a little bit more interesting plus a little more interesting just didn’t equal keeping my attention.
This has been dubbed historical fiction meets Fight Club. I’m not sure that the marketing department has ever read Fight Club. Regardless, I can see where someone might enjoy this immensely. It just didn’t have the punch to keep me going.
