The Book of Two Ways (by Jodi Picoult) … too much information to make it a pleasurable read

This is the second book I’ve read by Jodi Picoult that I had trouble finishing.  I have enjoyed so many of her books in the past, but this one just did me in.  There was too much information, especially philosophical, quantum physics, Egyptian hieroglyphs, symbolism, etc.  It just was too much to take in and did not read as a pleasure book.  I felt like I was back in college and completing required reading for a course.

Being given the opportunity for a second chance is a wonderful notion.  And I would have loved to enjoy that part of the book.  However, the information shared overwhelmed the emotional part that appealed to me.

Thank you to NetGalley and Ballantine Books for my advanced review copy.  All opinions and thoughts are my own.
