It's really strange how a book that you really hated stays with you far longer than one that you really enjoyed. I'd had this on my wishlist for ages, well before it was released in the UK. Jodi Picoult recommended it on her website when it was first released in the States and as a fan of hers, I wanted to read it.
It eventually came my way and I was so disappointed. I hated the fact that the characters were nameless - in fact I hated the characters. I wasnt interested in the parents and wanted to know more about the child.
I've enjoyed some William Trevor novels but didnt like Love and Summer - another disappointment, and like Annie, cant see the comparison at all.
