This book is fine, but it didn't captivate me. I didn't get attached to the main character (the narrator). I'm not sure whether it's because it was presented almost as a memoir so that you're not living through the events with her - or if it's because, while lots of things happen, nothing is dwelt upon. What I'd have thought were major events in a person's life get a page or two and then she just moves on. Maybe that's the point but, if so, I guess I'm just the wrong audience for this book.
