I tried. I tried so hard. But I just hated this book.
I mean, first of all, both Amy and Nick are both pretty unlikable and pretty boring. Things picked up a little when a new character emerges around page 150, but twenty pages later I was bored again. I didn't even care how Amy died, or why.
Secondly, Flynn is so focused on giving every minute detail of every single person, place, and object that is in, on, under, above, or around that I skipped entire pages waiting for the drivel to just bloody END. Good descriptions are great, but not when they take up pages. And ESPECIALLY not when it is in detriment to, oh, you know, plot development.
Flynn is so busy giving out all these details that she forgets to move the story along. I am thinking without all the unnecessary descriptions of every table, chair, mustache, and glance that it would have been a novella. There isn't enough story there to warrant it being a novel.
I know some people like it, I know others who managed to finish it but hated the ending, and when I was basically having to bribe myself to pick up the book I knew it was over.
