I really wanted to like this book a lot. I loved Ove a lot (which is what this book was compared to). But this book was a real downer for me. Henry was the best he could be and I felt so sorry for him. I think he was a nice guy, but listening to his inner thoughts just didn't cut it for me. His wife, so boring, I've already forgot her name, she hates Henry and is having an affair. Then there is Daisy, the girl that Henry let go and the love of his life.It's just agonizing and just down right dull.
I think the writing of this book is good, I just think the topic and story is really, really boring. These characters have nothing to thrill any reader and nothing worth reading. I'm terribly sorry to say that to that to the author. I know how hard you worked. But when I read a book, I want to be entertained. I don't want to hear about other people's problems and that was pretty much what this book was about. It should have been named "Oh Woe is Me".
