Review of The Imperfectionists

I must admit that I bought this book, because I liked the cover. Also, it had apparently gotten some good reviews. I don't feel the same way that the reviewers did. The book was fine; however, I kept expecting the book to go somewhere. In a nutshell, the book is about a newspaper in Italy. Each chapter is a story about a different staff member. Sometimes staff members appear in other staff member stories. However, there doesn't seem to be an overarching story to any of this. Plus, on the whole the characters aren't very likeable and we don't spend enough time with any one to grow to like them. I finished the book thinking thank goodness it is over.
