I just couldn't get into it. There was a part that was interesting towards the end, but otherwise this book just couldn't make me care about the characters or story.

The book was a lovely at some parts, but vague and general at others. It took me a while to get into the author's style, and after a while I was just bored by the plot and irritated by the narrator. Not to say it's not an interesting book— the subject matter and occaisionally the writing is interesting and provocative. But it drags in the middle, and toward the end I just wanted it to be over.
