This book had mixed reactions from the group.
On the one hand, people struggled with finishing it, didn’t like many of the characters, and there seemed to be superfluous details and characters (why for example, is Clara’s role so drawn out, given her part in the narrative?), and a lot of repetition.
On the other hand, the overall idea/story was interesting. Once again, this was a book that most members of the group would not necessarily have picked up on their own, and so, it was a good experience to go outside reading comfort zones.
