I ignored this book for a long time as it looked like a so-so read, and to be pushed as part of Oprah's book club, made me even more hesitant. Oh foolish me! This book held me captivated. I had a love/hate relationship with it. I hated what happens to some of the characters, and how it affected them all. At the same time, I couldn't put it down, as I HAD to see what happened to those characters next. There were many twists and turns I didn't see coming and was blindsided by an action one of the characters took. This is a fantastic read, and should be on everyone's list of books to read this year.
