my one word review on the book: "meh".

if you have time, read Unbroken. It was really, really good--lives up to the hype.

Ditto. I ready this recently and I was rather disappointed - I was hoping for another great story. I agree with your assessment of the characters. Meh.

Good review. I did like it, maybe more than you did. I think because there were flashes of great insight about our college compatriots who were members of "Women's Org" and would make you feel like an idiot for reading Hemingway. He nailed that. BTW, I am halfway through For Whom the Bell Tolls. I've read almost everything else by Hemingway but this is by far the best. Wow.

Just Kids was interesting, and I have looooooooved Patti Smith since 1977, but I kept thinking "Really? this won the National Book Award?!" I thought it was disappointing.

The Marriage Plot is on top of my "to be read" pile, so I'm getting to it next after I finish The Submission by Amy Waldman.
