For our January Book Club we read My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout. I did not like it at all. I could not understand where she was going with the story, what the premise was, and/ or what the point of the book was. I was so disheartened because the reviews were great and I really enjoyed Olive Kitteridge (our book club read it way before I started this blog and, therefore, there is no review for me to go back and refresh my memory!). Turns out I was not alone with my disappointment, as the others who read it in my group did not like it either. If you read it and loved it, or not, please let me know your thoughts in the comments below. I am curious why it has gotten such rave reviews when I clearly missed the boat.
