Anyone read or listened to this book?

All the raving about it I was expecting more. I've listened to the first couple of chapters and I'm about to throw in the towel unless I can expect it to get much better.

Writing is average doesn't stand out as particularly good in any way; interesting idea, but seems sappy, kitschy, etc.

A minor annoyance is if I heard correctly the events were suppose to take place in 1973 but the little girl seems "modern". Several references by the girl telling the story seem anachronistic.

The plot was promising, but the book circles the drain then ends with a weak flush. Reads like it was written ten minutes before deadline in the editor's bathroom. On toilet paper.

Just in case I wasn't clear enough, I hated it.
