It was a well written book that did not spark much enthusiasm with me. I felt curiously distanced the whole time. Like I was watching myself read the thing. I never got to that place where you are in the scene with the characters living the thing as its happening. I was always on the sidelines cooly observing and giving it some mild tennis applause.
I don't know why, it was pretty well written. But for whatever reason - I mostly just didn't care.
