I recommended CURIOSITY by Joan Thomas to my book club as my choice for this year, largely based upon the views of other previous reader/reviewers. Sadly, I did not enjoy the book much at all, and would have preferred now to have selected another. I found much of the plot predictable and boring. Despite being a well-educated and experienced reader, I expected this novel to grab me quickly at the beginning. It didn't. At times, I thought the pace plodding, its story line inevitable. To be fair, some natural descriptions and allusions are apt and evocative, and Thomas does include interesting vocabulary and usage which would have been contemporary to Anning. I did push myself through to the end, and was dissatisfied with this novel overall.
