What I am Reading….

The Falls by Joyce Carol Oates

This is the second book by JCO that I have read.  It just might be the last.  It was not the worse thing I have ever read, but she uses so many words to say so little.  Lots of words, if they are good words, is fine, even enjoyable.  The story could have been told in at least half as many pages.  Using the early days of the Love Canal lawsuits as a backdrop was interesting, but the characters were flat.  The dialog was even flat.
