I had high hopes for this book but I have to say that I was disappointed. The story was slow and at times it just dragged on and on. The first thing that bothered me was the jumping back and forth in time. I found it confusing that sometimes I would be reading a part thinking the story continues, then I would realize that it is actually recounting the same scene I have just read but from the point of view of a different character.

Briony is a whiny, annoying, loud child.  I didn’t like the author’s style.
