I tried, I tried so hard to like this book. The potential was there – if you were looking for an epic novel and not a vacation read.
The intertwined lives of two star-crossed lovers, now middle-aged on the edge of divorce.
Tragedy strikes within the first few pages and we are sent back in time to see how the destiny of the two main characters brought them to this point.
It was really fascinating, but after 100 pages I just wanted to know how it ended. I would have flipped through to the last pages but…well, I figured I only deserve the gratification if I know how it ended.
I never did find out.
If you have all of the time in the world, don’t need any humor and can handle basically depressing lives. This book is for you.
