I didn\'t really enjoy the book. Our book club has 6 members - 3 really liked and 3, not so much. It took me a full 2 weeks to read the book, which is unusual for me. I just couldn\'t get into the story. There seemed to be nothing but tragedy in the story, and while that may have been how life was back then, it started to get predictable and I was waiting for what horrible thing would happen next. While I didn\'t really enjoy the book, it did make for good discussion.
We had a wonderful discussion about this book. Half of out book club enjoyed the book, the other half did not. I found the book to be a little difficult to read and maybe that was because he is a British author. But the subject matter was interesting and gave our group a lot to discuss.
