This novel was depressing to say the least. Totally unconvinced that Park even deserved redemption and Chloe was too much of a wimp to tell him to hit the road. None of the characters were particularly likeable so I failed to connect very well with the story.
I kept reading and reading, hoping to find any redeeming quality, but to no avail. I just don't understand why it gets rave reviews.
The protagonist is described as astonishingly ugly, but her mom is in hospice & she has a lot of friends, so she's got 'true beauty', and the antagonist is a supposedly mesmerizingly handsome, yet shallow man. Add pointless sub-plots & that's about it.
I really tried to like this, but the part of my mind that embraces all good and enjoyable literature rejected it.
