I don't know if I built this one up in my head too much because everyone said it was fantastic or what, but I had to slog through this. It was all right. I thought the "secret" of what Briony was, was pretty obvious, though. I also thought the style of writing was kind of annoying. I hated how Rose spoke - "preferring" things to happen a certain way. I wonder if I had listened to this if I would have liked it better. I know the audio version is supposed to be very good. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad. I am glad I'm done with it, though.
