A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki

A Tale for the Time Being - Ruth Ozeki

Very disappointing.  The writing was tedious to read through, and it felt like it was over-explaining everything.  Too much telling and not enough showing, plus the mini lectures mixed in made it even drier.  I wanted to see the story progress, but, instead, I lost interest pretty early on.
