"Brooklyn" by Colm Toibin
Even though this book was highly praised by the critics, I thought it started out very slowly. It got such good reviews that I kept reading. It was divided into 4 parts and the story got more interesting in parts 3 and 4.
I like Eilis and Tony, but I didn't like where the author took the story between Eilis and Jim. I also had mixed feelings about the ending.
