I’m two chapters into this - do I want to continue? Finding it a bit s.l.o.w at the moment...

I read it last year. It was ok.
I preferred Little Fires Everywhere

I did finish it but it certainly wasn't a stand out for me

I’m reluctant to stop reading - maybe it’s come off the back of some more fast-paced reads and I’m just noticing the change. I’ll check out Little Fires Everywhere thanks @BookWitch

I loved it. I found it a bit slow to start but very skilfully written.

I'd agree with @BookWitch, it was ok. I read it all, having found it slow too. I don't think it deserved all of the hype, but then I rarely do!
Have you read Bel Canto by Ann Patchett? I know you didn't ask for recs but I really enjoyed it!

Gosh I don’t know what is wrong with me but I found Little Fires Everywhere a bit overhyped.

I haven’t read Bel Canto @DonLewis - I’ll check it out. I always like to have 4/5 books lined up Smile

I’ll carry on with Everything... maybe I need to devote a couple of hours to it rather than snatching a few pages before I drop off at night!

I thought it was good, sad though and maybe a warning to us parents on what not to do.
