Review: A Spool of Blue Thread

User Review  - Goodreads

The plot of this book is basically nonexistent. It reads like a list of things people did and makes the reader not care at all - about the characters or their lives. There is no character development, just a bunch of names of people who know each other. Not worth reading. Read full review

This is an award winning book but for the life of me, I cannot understand why. There was almost no plot whatsoever and the supposedly great character development to me was flatter than a crepe. There ... Read full review

Full of cliches, undeveloped characters and going nowhere plot lines. I love Anne Tyler, but the last couple of her books are not up to her standard. Read full review

No plot. Bland characters. Basically the daily episodes of a dysfunctional family told across three generations. I forced myself to read to the end hoping the magic would appear. No magic. A disappointment. Read full review

One of the worst books I've read. Choppy dialogue, difficult to follow story line, and a ridiculous, nonsensical ending. A waste of time, really. A 1 star rating is generous. Read full review

I quit reading this book. It jumped all over the place and dragged on and on and on. Since I received my IPad I have only had two books that I just couldn't read and this is one of them. Read full review

While the family dynamics are captured well, didn't care about any of the characters or the story. Boring. Read full review

If this wasn't a book club book, I would have stopped reading it. I couldn't get into this one. The second half was worse than the first half. I found myself skimming some chapters towards the end. Read full review
