First and foremost, my condolences to the author. And that's about the nicest thing I can say about this book.
I'll start by saying it for you. I'm a terrible person, an emotional cripple. How can a father give this book anything below five stars!?
Well, because the book is boring. I simply never wanted to pick it up again after I laid it down. I started it on the 7th and it is now the 17th. I made it through the first third of the book but nothing is drawing me in further. Thus, I am throwing in the towel.
So, yes, rage-comment below on how insensitive I am and how you wish me to die in a fire. I won't even respond to you. Let me have it. Punish me, mistress... Okay, maybe that wasn't the best choice of words.
In summation: I feel for this family, but this book is, for me, banal to the point of being unreadable.
Final Judgment: A tragic incident discussed in the most sleep-inducing of ways.
