A tragic past, a series of quirks and a drinking problem does not a character make. Ok? Ok.
While this book was not terrible, it was nowhere near the deep, psychological novel that the author seemed to be going for. The workings of the plot were transparent, the setting barely a sketch and, as above, the characters, especially the main one and her bartender BFF were barely there.
This was from a group of books for review I got in 2008 that I finished, but couldn’t find enough to say about to really review. I’m not sure why I put this one on tryharder’s list, but there you go.
