The Sweetheart Season: Meh!

The Sweetheart Season: A Novel (Ballantine Reader's Circle)The Sweetheart Season: A Novel by Karen Joy Fowler

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book has received accolades and was a Ballantine Reader's Circle selection...but perhaps akin to Anne Tyler and Carol Shields, I just didn't find the writing very interesting. She introduces a great number of characters, many of whom are inconsequential, and spends a great deal of time describing the mill town of Magrit.

I read to page 52, and I didn't really care about any of the characters, so I've decided to give up on this book.
