the writing gets in the way of the story

by thinkbillly on Jun 3, 2007

Obviously written with hopes of being adapted for the big screen, what could have been a favorite book is reduced to a pretentious, badly edited waste of paper. Too often I had visions of the author searching her thesaurus for a more obnoxious descriptor. (exactly like that.) I also found myself enjoying the misfortunes of the obtuse heroine, Iris Greenfeder, a little too much. Goodman has a talent for creating the most redundantly annoying phrases, kinda like a 16 year old creative writing student.

Found plot mildly interesting, but not "riveting"; writing mediocre; could easily put it down, but others might like it.
