To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Non mi è piaciuto il libro. Mi chiedo come possa aver vinto un premio Pulitzer. Interessante l’analisi psicologica della situazioni, ma noiosa da leggere. Non mi piace lo stile, l’insistenza nel ripetere le frasi, quasi pensando che i lettori non possano capire. Recentemente ho letto libri molto più accattivanti che hanno lasciato molto in me. Questo ho faticato a leggerlo fino alla fine.
Theme was presented on one page toward the end of the book. All you need to read. Tedious. rambling, back and forth in time, written from the point of view of inside a woman's mind, dull. Skip this one. I am returning as I will not be able to reco this to anyone. Hate to pay for a new hardback when I can not share it.
I had hoped this book actually would be about William and how he had to deal with Lucy; whining, insecure, self-pitying, "self-absorbed" (Strout's word, but I completely agree), Lucy. The more I read, the more disgusted I was. Please, give us more like Olive Kitteridge and MUCH less Lucy. OR, actually write a book about William and how he tolerated her as long as he did.
I’m trying to force myself to finish this book because I can’t return it but the main character is annoyingly anxious, whiny, and strange. The majority of the book is babbling about nothing and all over the place.
