I tried and tried. This is one of those books that started out so-so, but I was somewhat intrigued. Next thing I know, I've renewed the story with the library until I hit my limit. Each page has been a struggle for me. I'm 60 pages from the end and I'm calling it quits. I kept trying, but there's a certain point when I just have to admit that I'm done. Sorry, but it wasn't for me.
