Marjorie Morningstar by Herman Wouk

Marjorie Morningstar - Herman Wouk

The book started off ok, but it got tiring and rather dull pretty quickly.  Lots of very long, boring conversations that didn't feel very realistic, and I lost interest in the characters fairly early on.  Perhaps I would have liked it when I was younger, but it just wasn't very interesting to me now.
