Journal Entry 1 by LeighBCD on Saturday, March 21, 2009

7 out of 10

I have had this copy of the novel for a while but for whatever reason, it took me a long time to get around to reading it. I also accidentally bought a copy of the book as an audiobook. That may be why.

Anyway, I love Anita Shreve novels but this one I found disappointing. I read it very quickly - I kept expecting something massive to happen (Shreve often puts a humdinger of a climax in the final pages) but I did not find it. On the other hand, the depiction of a father and daughter coming to slow terms with the grief was very moving. And Anita Shreve on a bad day is still better than 95% of the writers out there.

I will release this book into the wild.
