Helpful Score: 5

I was excited to pick up this book, mostly because of the hype about Water for Elephants. I have to admit that I started skimming about 2/3 of the way through. The protagonist, Annemarie, is often more despicable than sympathetic, and the book was making me cringe. She is utterly incompetent in her personal and professional life. Although, naturally, she finds her way in the end, it was difficult as a reader to struggle along with her. I'll read/skim the sequel, but only because I got both books at once and it's already on my shelf.
