I kept hanging in reading this, thinking it was going to "take off" and go somewhere besides backwards dips into to the characters' pasts, but I gave up halfway through. There were some really pithy, funny observations here and there about the protagonist's life experiences, and I found these quite enjoyable. But the story itself, I found mainly boring and rather depressing.
