That makes sense. I have this vague sense that whatever is keeping me from loving it is the same thing that keeps me from loving Smilla's Sense of Snow -- but I don't know what that thing is.

I'm about halfway through this and think it's excellent.

Just starting this one and I think it's going to be good stuff. Very short, small book.
I'd definitely recommend both of these.

30. Mystic River by Dennis Lehane

I was looking for Shutter Island based on a recomendation from this board, but since it was checked out I tried this one. I enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to reading more by Lehane.

31. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

I've read this one a number of times and enjoy it every time I re-read it.
