I am WAY in the minority with this one, I know, but it is not for me. I hesitated before writing anything about it, because I didn’t even finish it. I was fairly involved for about 50 pages, less so for maybe 50 more, and finally gave up about 3/4 in when I realized not only did I not care what happened, but also didn’t even find it particularly interesting.
Probably, if I owned this, it would sit on the nightstand for a few weeks, or longer, and then one magical day I’d pick it up and the time would be right. That’s what happened with Atonement, which in the end I loved, among several others. But this one, it was on hold at the library, so perhaps I will never know.
It’s disappointing, because I really looked forward to it, and because on paper (I made a funny!) it sounds marvelous. But, the murkiness and uncertainty of the memory fog just became, boring, honestly. Just not the right time for me, I guess. Over & out.
