Reading Across the Country

Reading books one travel week at a time...
Remarkable Creatures - Tracy Chevalier When I was 7 or 8 years old, I wanted to be a paleontologist when I grew up. There was something fascinating about the bones of creatures who had died out millions of years ago. It was hard to believe that species could simply cease to exist. I was never one of those kids who memorized every dinosaur, but I was intrigued nonetheless.

When I read the description of this book I was excited - two women discovering fossils and friendship - awesome! This book was disappointing. It was dull and parts dragged quite a bit. Maybe my expectations were too high and I was expecting too much out of the characters. I should have learned my lesson on Chevalier by now - I don't find her books exciting. I plod through to finish a book, but don't take much from it and would not consider reading it again.
