Gosh, maybe it is because I am 63 and have read a lot of books and seen a lot of movies that I am not so easily impressed, but this book was just not good to me. Maybe all the good reviews are coming from the 18 to 25 year group who are still gaining life experiences. It seems to me that so many of the new popular books are just flat, boring, forgettable and disappointing. I find myself reading older books over again to get my reading enjoyment. It took me three weeks of laying this down and picking it back up and quite a bit of skimming to get to the finish. I felt I had read this same story many times before and seen this plot as a movie at least a dozen times before. I did not think the writing was good at all. Sometimes beautiful writing can carry a weaker book, but this was just a mess to me and nothing new.
