    1. Took a long time for me to finish and, a couple of times, I thought about not doing so I got a strong sense of place from the writing but ultimately couldn t follow the relationships and the writing style left me re reading entire passages in a vain attempt to stay in the book.


    2. Kate Lyons The Water Underneath is an enjoyable read, exploring the lives of three women across three different generations.I picked up an uncorrected proof at the local Vinnies for 50 cents, so I m not going to spend a lot of time nitpicking details But I feel like that was an incredible buy because the story is so engaging However, I have to point that the blurb lies it s not really a road movie and it s not a murder mystery either Don t get me wrong there are elements of both, but that s all [...]


    3. I got to page 159 of this novel Unfortunately, as seems often the case in critically acclaimed works, there was too much writing not enough story With 200 other books in my to read pile I decided to devote the time it would take to finish it to something else.


    4. The story constantly leaps around in time and is written from the perspective of different characters in 3rd person There are 3 generations involved in the story, so this technique fails Hard to get into, hard to read and ultimately pointless.
