a disappointment
After reading Like Water for Elephants, which remains one of my all-time favorite stories, I was very much looking forward to reading this one from Sara Gruen. This book didn't live up to my expectations. The storyline is compelling for sure, and motivated me to learn more about the topic, but the reading of the story itself was dull, extremely predictable, kind of formulaic, and not especially fleshed out in any meaningful ways. I'm glad I read it, I was just hoping for so much more.
