The Invention of Wings

I recently finished reading Sue Monk Kidd's "Invention of Wings" and I have to say, I was so underwhelmed.  "The Secret Life of Bees" is one of my Top 10 favorite books and I really enjoyed "The Mermaid Chair" so I was pretty excited when her latest book came out.  Historical fiction is my favorite genre but this book just left me with an overwhelming feeling of disappointment.   Kidd's characters are usually so deep and intricate but this was not the case with this book and I felt absolutely no empathy towards any of them.

I just started reading "The Fault in our Stars" and did not realize it was kind of YA (young adult).  It's been on a lot of "must read" lists this year and I know the movie is to be released soon.  I'm only twenty or thirty pages in so we'll see how this one pans out.
