2 - Mixed Review


i was really looking forward to reading this book. The subject matter as well as the review seemed enticing. The first aspect to rub me the wrong way was the rapid-fire, tiresomely clever slapstick jokes and dialog. Next, long digressions that halted the reader in mid-stride without adding suspense, insight, or emotional weight. The mother is hazily depicted as are her motives. Husband Josh seems so shallow and stupid it's hard to empathize with him. Lots said about Dr. Stokes, but you don't feel what drives her, though you're told.
