Total dissapointment

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

Tried hard to get into it. Gave up half way. Still not sure what is it all about. Very dull narration, plot boring to say the least.Very dissapointed.

Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Tyler again?

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None what so ever

The beauty of Anne Tyler is that she writes characters that you really believe in. In this novel you don't particularly like the main character but you end up falling in love with him and with the heroine Muriel.
