I love that this story centers on a middle-aged woman, rather than a young, finding love, character. Marianne is stuck. Her marriage is dull, her life is dull, and she decides to make a change. This is where my interest began to wane. The story felt too dark and dreary, and rather than sympathize with Marianne, I found myself getting annoyed at her. She was too dramatic and took things to the extreme. I didn’t finish the book because it was bringing me down, rather than enlightening me, inspiring me, or pulling at my heart or head strings
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
