Review of Instaread Infographic of "Miller’s Valley" by Anna Quindlen

Review of

Instaread Infographic of Miller’s Valley by Anna Quindlen

Two out of five stars

 I have also read and reviewed the Instaread summary of this book, so I have some knowledge of the subject of what is a summary of a summary in the form of this infographic. Novels hold your attention by having complex characters dealing with complex events in their lives, individual events can be simplistic, but there must be some uncertainty and difficulties.
 This creates problems when there is an attempt to summarize the book where there is no option to express an opinion based on identified positive and negative aspects of the story. It is almost impossible to do justice to a novel via 36 pages containing a simple image and a sentence or two of text. This infographic does not jump that difficult hurdle.
 There is not enough content in this infographic to give the otherwise uninformed reader a reason to either read or avoid this book.
