I lasted five (5) chapters and finally gave up. The author is talented, but this is a novel about a dead man, and all the women in his life who now hate him and also hate each other. To me, that does not classify as a plot, nor does it keep my interest. Yawn, then return.

I tried. I really did. I only made it two and a half chapters and had to return it. I found it totally boring.

Loved this book! Excellent story, well-developed, interesting characters and intelligent dialogue. This is the first book I've read by this author, but I'd love to read more. Definitely recommend!
