This isn't a review, just an update on my reading. I'm trying to read this book and it sucks. The characters are so annoying due and I'm on page 302 and don't get what the point of the book is. Right now there are some political and environmental issues being addressed, which would normally interest me but they are being presented in such a boring way.
I barely ever abandon a book after starting to read it (with the exception of Moby Dick), but I'm seriously considering switching to something more entertaining. Oprah gave me such high hopes for this book and so far I've been nothing but disappointed.
