I enjoyed this book at the same time that I was frustrated by it. Nine strangers sign up for a life-changing retreat and end up in a totally unexpected situation. They were there for different reasons and we learn a lot about each one. Not all of them are totally likable or interesting, so I tended to skim over the chapters involving them. It is a very fast read but I kept getting the sense that this book really wasn't "about" anything. Everyone was "changed" by his/her experience in unexpected ways. ( )

I felt like it was a bit slow at first but halfway through and all the way to the end it definitely picked up speed. I had to take breaks when they were “locked in” because it was causing me to feel claustrophobic, too. I was so relieved when the house was not on fire and they were able to leave. What a trip. ( )

Some really great moments with emotions all over, but a little slow at times. ( )

I could not read this book. It was pretentious, with plastic people, and unrealistic situations. I have in the past enjoyed her books but since she became famous her books have slowly become boring and unreadable. How this book made everyone list last year is a mystery ( )

This one started out very fun and interesting, although a little outside the author's normal 'box'. About halfway into it, the story took a wild and bizarre turn, one that I really didn't care for. I was a fast read. Not sure I can recommend it. A bare 3 stars. ( )
