not as good as I thought it would be

The story crept at a snails pace and the characters were not very likeable, even the main one that was a breast cancer victim. ( this may sound unsympathetic but I got tired of hearing "the bright pink scar") The narrator seemed at times to be more interested in e-n-u-c-i-a-t-i-n-g than just reading the story.

Unimpressed

I don't think the author knows anything about being in Door County in the fall/early winter. It just wasn't credible on several levels.

The narrator had the flattest monotone I've heard in a long time. Not someone I'd ever have read a book again.
