A very easy read but not memorable. The main character is every sad and overdone. Too drawn out, and gave the plot away right at the beginning.

A big spread of opinions on this one. A couple loved it and could relate to many of the characters. Others found it slow, rambling and over emotive. Intriguing premise and issues, and the feeling of how would each of us react though, despite the negativity.
