This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
The Outer Cape seemed to have many of the elements I really enjoy in a novel: family saga, secrets, small town life. As another reviewer has stated though, somehow it didn't come together for me. I found the characters unpleasant, which doesn't at all have to be a deal breaker in a novel but seemed to be, for me, in this case. The author did a good job in his warts and all descriptions of his characters. Maybe too good, since in the end I found none of them sympathetic or even very interesting. ( )

I received my copy of The Outer Cape from LT. I so wanted to like this book. The premise is one the I usually enjoy. Family situations, struggles.. secrets. I just could not commit myself to any of the characters. I don't necessarily have to "like" characters, sometimes it makes a better read when you don't lol. Irene and Robert are not very likable - but they also did not feel "real" to me. ( )
