I've just begun my mission of trying to read all the books on Oprah's Book Club list & this was her first pick. I'm not exactly sure why. Maybe if I read as fast as she does I could feel the flow of it but because I am a relatively slow reader (thanks to my 10 month old) I didn't feel the "oomph" or the "wow" that should make a Book Club list. It started out without any profanity and then one of the author's youngest characters just started throwing it around, which wasn't totally necessary. The book was ok or just average in my humble opinion. I will see if Oprah & I have similar tastes in books as I move on to book #2 on her list.
