I haven't given up on a book for a very long time but I couldn't put myself through reading anymore of this one. My kindle informed me that I'm 51% of the way through the story and I can't face the next 49%. There are too many good books out there to waste my time reading this one.
The story jumps about too much, it's all over the place. More than once I had to check I'd not accidentally changed books, a new chapter can start with a totally new situation and totally new characters. Vivi was the only character I liked yet still not enough to care about what happens to her. I found it hard to care about any character as there were so many who were all having many pages and even chapters dedicated solely to them.
I feel that Jojo's has tried to be too fancy and flowery with her writing in this book. My mind wandered multiple times to the point where I was having to read multiple pages again to discover that I'd missed absolutely no story or character progression, no wonder my mind was wandering!
I really enjoyed Me Before You and will give Jojo's writing another go as I'm sure she can't have written too many books like this one.
Even a 'lesser' JoJo Moyes book is better than most others' best efforts, so in a way it is difficult to criticise. It is intelligently written and like most of her other books is complex and multi-layered, requiring total concentration from the reader and even going back and re-reading bits to make sure you didn't miss something somewhere. The main problem is that most of the characters, with the exception of Vivi and to some extent Jessie, are so unlikeable and dysfunctional that you want to slap them. Vivi you want to shake rather than slap, but at least you have some sympathy for her. By the end of the book and following the arc of development of the characters, you can understand why they are like they are, but it means a long wait and a lot of annoyance and exasperation on the part of the reader before you come to this understanding, and I'm not sure if it's worth the hours spent disliking almost everybody just to get to the end. Having said that, it must take a good deal of talent and confidence to write a book where the characters are mostly so unlikeable and annoying that there's a fair chance of alienating most of your readers. I can't say I enjoyed the book exactly, but I recognise that Ms Moyes is a very good writer. On balance I would rather have a book that is well written to the point where it makes me genuinely dislike most of the characters, than one where they are one dimensional and shallow and the writing is poor. But it is rather heavy going.
PS Edit. Thinking about it, there are some minor characters who are rather poignant and even likeable. The writer does poignant very well and it would have been good to hear more about those characters.
