I really enjoyed this well written book. It was somewhere between a series of related short stories and a novel. Each chapter was told from a different point of view, but the same characters kept appearing over and over again. It went forward and backward in time from one chapter to the next, but I didn't have any trouble keeping track of the action. I rate it 4 out of 5.

We went to Tulsa to see the NatureWorks wildlife art exhibit, where I bought a hand colored etching from Melanie Fain. We ate lunch at Mimi's Cafe before seeing the art exhibit. My friends were quite impressed with my little Altoid tin of watercolors and my waterbrush!

One week, my watercolor instructor didn't show up for class. The next week, he was there, but he had the flu. I didn't wait around to find out where he'd been the previous week; I went to Panera instead. And then I dropped out of the class.
I rarely read non-fiction, and after reading this book, I'm reminded why. It was the April selection for the book club I visit when we visit our friends in Tennessee each year. While the book was somewhat interesting at times, I didn't really enjoy it. It was very tedious reading for me; I'm actually surprised I finished it. I rate it 2 out of 5.
