My book club is reading the Memory Keeper's Daughter and I am rather underwhelmed and frustrated. I'm not happy with several of the adult characters (save for Carolyn) and their choices (or lack of them). If the secret keeping isn't driving me crazy it's the overly-earnest tone of people rationalizing passiveness and not communicating. If I'm not angry at it I'm slightly depressed about it. I have about 1 hour left and I can't wait for it to be over so I can read something a little more cheerful (ok so the main character is doing well) though the truth is finally reaching one of the characters and is having some effect (I think). Though if I were in that character's position I'd be royally pissed off.
