I feel like Ive read a completely different book from everyone else. This book and I did not gel. I didn't like Anna. I didn't get why Anna became so obsessed with Abel. To me, he had no outstanding qualities and he treated her like dirt. I didn't feel any chemistry between any characters. I didn't feel like the language flowed properly. Note that: All my GR friends of whom I trust have highly rated it so I'm a little puzzled over my own dislike of it. I feel like the fish swimming in the fishbowl whilst everyone else is in the pond happily enjoying themselves.
