For the most part, I loved this book. I thought the chapters told from Little Bee's perspective were absolutely perfect. The chapters told from Sarah's perspective had me going back and forth. It was one of those things where I wanted to groan and roll my eyes at some of the first world problems that became even more glaringly obvious because of the obvious third world story being told. Also, I feel like most of the people giving this book flack is because of the lame dust jacket description. The book is good. Don't blame the book for a bad marketing team at the publishing company.
