Alternate Side- Anna Quindlen

Ugh… I really wanted to like this book, but I just couldn’t get into it. I kept waiting for more and it never came.

With that being said, the writing is great- I just wasn’t interested in this particular story line. This is the description that made me interested in reading the novel:

“The tensions in a tight-knit neighborhood—and a seemingly happy marriage—are exposed by an unexpected act of violence in this provocative new novel…”

Although, true- I found the entire book to be rather anti-climatic and not provocative. I could see myself liking this novel more in years to come, but for now- it just didn’t hold my interest.
