I just could not get into this book

I just could not get into this book.  I ended up reading 75% of the book and I just couldn’t get into it.  I gave it the best try I could.  The premise sounds amazing. All of a sudden, things that were made out of plastic started melting and not working anymore.  It didn’t hit everything at once like I thought it was going to.

It seemed like it was going to be more about the event with people around it – but it was about the people.  And the issue that I have with that was that I wasn’t given a reason to like anyone in the book.  I just couldn’t find a reason to like a single person that was written about.

I think that some people would and will enjoy this book, especially people who are into the books that talk about the human experience.  I think that if I went into Drop by Drop knowing that it was much less about the plastics and much more about the people I would have entered it with a different point of view and maybe enjoyed it more.

The premise, while awesome – wasn’t executed to the ability I thought it would or could be and I just couldn’t figure out the “why” that I think was trying to be told.  Hillary Huber does a great job narrating it.  I only made it as far as I did because I enjoyed her narration so much. I requested a free copy of this book - it has not affected my review in any way.
