I Still Dream About You by Fannie Flagg
I mostly picked this up because I was looking for something light and fluffy after my battle with Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. I thought, "Fannie Flagg! Author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Cafe! Perfect. Whimsical. Quirky. Just what I need." Not whimsical. Not quirky. Boring. With terrible pacing. Just terrible. The first half is kind of a downer and reeeeeeeaallly slow. Then there is an interesting little section in the middle with what appears to be a mystery but is totally predictable. Then the end which wraps everything up in about two pages. And they all live happily ever after the end. Such a disappointment. Skip this one.
