I will refrain from giving any type of synopsis as there are several available. It would be impossible to express any of the subtleties and intricacies of the story and a simpe outline would miss the point! I will just urge you to take the book in hand and give in to a wild and wonderous winter's ride!
The writer is very descriptive and colorful, so that was a asset. The events, characters history, and places are VERY detailed and sometimes droned on and on too much for my attention span.
There were parts of the book I enjoyed a lot, but other parts I had to skim over caused it just droned on and on. Unlike some of my fellow book club members, I did finish it, but can't say I really understood the ending. I gave this book 3 stars because overall it was a well written and thoughtout book.
I really wanted to like this book. There must be people out there who love it, or I assumed so, since they made a movie, maybe not so much since it was so loosely based on it? The adaptation was great, I felt that the changes were an improvement.
