I didn't like the characters. I felt there was so little love and never without heartache to follow. It may be gritty life but it isn't my life or life experiences. That being said the story did grip me and I couldn't stop listening.

This was a tough book for me to like. The characters are well-drawn and did feel connected to them at various times. But the story's many themes and events (childhood, adolescent rebellion, guilt, shame, agoraphobia, aging, death of young and old, being different - too short or too tall - marriage, parenthood, infidelity) were too much and I stopped caring about the outcomes toward the end of the book.
I think the book was written wraith much too much narration and not enough dialog. I was TOLD what people said, did, thought, bit felt like I didn't experience it.
And... I really didn't like the narrator. She added unnecessary emphasis to some words and phrases, making it hard for me to judge anything for myself.
