treacle, sickly sweet

This book was a real disappointment. I'm not even sure why it was recommended; I certainly will be more careful in the future.
The problem is the self-consciousness of the writer, and her inability to edit her own thoughts, so that every voice is the same one, the protagonist, the Polish characters, the errant wife - every one of them is infused with saintly values, maudlin self-absorption and overly verbose sentimentality. Yuck!
