Brooklyn - Colm Tóibín

Very disappointing. I kept debating whether or not to keep reading, because it felt like nothing was happening, and the characters felt so flat. Eventually, some things do happen, but it didn't make it much better. It also didn't feel like it took place in the 1950s, and I didn't feel like I cared for any of the characters.
