The writing is unadventurous.

It is practically the same novel as Franzens Freedom, which was very poor.

You do not come away from this novel any better as a person, which is what good fiction does.

The worst part is that its just an average novel that some decent and dedicated amateur would write, but we are being told by critics that it is amazing.
