review 1: This book was entertaining, but it was just not good. A lot of insider details that no one that lives outside of Atlanta would relate to or care about, and I assume there were a bunch of San Fran insider details that I missed. When I see authors do this I feel like they are working on a Creative Writing 101 exercise where the instructor told them to really work on characterizing a place for their assignment. Just not good, and annoying because there are all of these editorial reviews talking about this "powerful/beautiful story." Sorry to be so negative.
review 2: Though certainly an interesting idea, the story falls flat pretty early on, for White fails to develop her characters or their surroundings. Reading this I was strongly reminded of Marilynne Robinson'
... mores "Housekeeping" (the protagonist is even named Ruthie) with the added bonus of Ian McEwan's Briony Tallis. Overall, the book was okay, but I felt like it was hastily slapped together because of the media coverage surrounding Captain Sully's Miracle on the Hudson. less

It was an okay book to read, but don't go out of your way to buy it or anything.
I did not finish it because I could not get into it.
Two and a half... OK read but not good.
Couldn't put it down!
