Just not my cup of tea.I actually won a book way back, and out of the poor choices I chose this one. I figured I'd read it- it sounded amazing! And [author: Isabel Allende] had such good reviews all the time, so why not?Great mistake. I found her writing to be tedious to my personality. I couldn't get past the first pages as it failed miserably to catch my interest and was clearly not the type of literature I enjoy. I guess I'll stick to the genres I know I enjoy from now on, because clearly my incursion in others has failed.
