This was one of those books that I got about three-quarters of the way through before I thought, "Why?" Although the writing was good, the book just depressed me so bad, and from what I knew about it even before I read it, I knew that I wasn't likely to be any less depressed when I finished it. If I'm not going to be actually entertained or enthralled by a book, I at least want to learn something from it, and that didn't seem to be happening for me. But, as always, YMMV, because I'm not a big fan of that category of books I call "Oprah books," which always seem to feature someone with a wretched life story trying to find some redemption in the end. I've read plenty of sad books in my time, but now I want something a little different. Only my opinion, though, and lots of people love this book. :-)
