A Change In Alititude by Anita Shreve

 Margaret and Patrick have been married just a few months when they set off on what they hope will be a great adventure-a year living in Kenya. Margaret quickly realizes there is a great deal she doesn't know about the complex mores of her new home, and about her own husband.

A British couple invites the newlyweds to join on a climbing expedition to Mount Kenya, and they eagerly agree. But during their harrowing ascent, a horrific accident occurs. In the aftermath of the tragedy, Margaret struggles to understand what happened on the mountain and how these events have transformed her and her marriage, perhaps forever.

A Change in Altitude illuminates the inner landscape of a couple, the irrevocable impact of tragedy, and the elusive nature of forgiveness. With stunning language and striking emotional intensity, Anita Shreve transports us to the exotic panoramas of Africa and into the core of our most intimate relationships.  description taken from here.

I was pretty bored with this book.  The begining starts with the couple saying how next week they will be climbing the mountain in Kenya and it ends with one of the characters just making to the top of mountain.  They didn't even sound excited to be climbing a mountain, it was like they were talking about the whether or something.  Anyways, I was just bored.  It simply did not capture my attention.  I found the whole thing blah and very plain.

Has anyone else read this yet?  If so, what did you think of it?

**I received a copy of this book from hosting a giveaway.  I did not get paid for this post.  The opinions are 100% mine unless otherwise stated.**
