Her Fearful Symmetry
Hmmm... I was super excited about this one because I love The Time Traveler's Wife so much. Plus she got paid a whopping advance so I had high hopes (as did the publisher I imagine).
The writing was beautiful, thoughtful and descriptive. However that's all the good I've really got to say. The beginning was slow, the middle was a little skeevy and the end was incredibly dark. The Time Traveler's Wife had glimmers of darkness but overall the story was about characters you loved. Her Fearful Symmetry was exactly the opposite, so maybe the title is more ironic than even intended.
