  "Almost Home" by Misfits (see profile) 05/19/10

Our book club liked the book, but feel it was a little confusing so it made it hard to get through. Then the end just stopped abruptly. There is going to be a sequel to the book and many of our members are going to read the follow up book to see what happens with the characters. A lot of attention was paid to the backgrounds and locations of the scenes, but many of the characters were underdeveloped. Also the time line seems to be slightly off with the events happening in the book. EX- something happened on Thursday, then when talking about it on Monday the character says 'yesterday...'. This being said, a good portion of our book club liked the drawing in of current events and history that the book implied. We feel that if the characters were better developed (or expressed for the audience) and a little less attention paid to the streets and college scenery, the book would have flowed better and been easier to read. Overall it was a good book and we enjoyed reading a different genre.
