Breathless; Anne Sward

BreathlessBreathless by Anne Sward
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I tried. I really, really tried. But halfway through, I realized this was just not doing it for me: the pacing was odd (mostly glacial, but passages that moved quickly), the characters weren't interesting (who cared about mom and her axe? or all the adults that Lo lived with?), and the tie-in to the movie Breathless wasn't as clear as it could have/should have been. Perhaps this is a translation problem, or perhaps it's just the way the book was written, but it just isn't for me.
