lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The Burgess Boys - Elizabeth Strout After loving Olive Kitteridge I was looking forward to reading this one. The prologe intrigued me, but then the story completely lost my interest. All the characters annoyed me, and I finally gave up halfway through. I tried to skim the rest, but it was so boring I couldn't even care how it turned out.
