I managed to push myself to the end of this book, mostly because I was hoping that there would be something to redeem the main character there. Unfortunately, it just didn't happen. I have never read a book where I disliked the main character so much throughout the entire book. I don't think the writing was bad, and I would be willing to give the author another chance with something else, but this book just made me angry. The main character was naive and pathetic when she was younger, and didn't appear to really have any growth once she was older. I'm sure some might see redemption at the end for her character, but for me it was too little, too late. I don't want to give this one star, because I thought the writing was good, it was just the story that was lacking for me.
