I found this one was more hype than hit for me, too much of Harold speaking like a zen master and Joyce telling me what to think/feel. I've only read 4/12 for this year's Booker books but I suspect this one will make the shortlist - those who love are, as you say, somewhat evangelic about it.


Bummer. I read this after Wild, which I hated, so this book received all the love I had wanted to lavish on that one.


Recently won a copy, so will be reading it soon. Your experience tempers my expectations... which is probably a good thing. Sorry it didn't live up to the hype for you.

Alex, glad I'm not alone.

Softdrink, that may have been part of the problem. I read this right after Gods Without Men, which I loved.

JoAnn, always happy to help set expectations. :-)
