The Tenth Song grabbed my interest at the start, began to build toward the middle, only to leave me feeling let down well before the end.
The seemingly perfect life of an upper class Jewish family suddenly turns a dark corner to bring about an examination of what is most important in life.
The story presents an age old question about material worth and social status within the context of a modern day set of circumstances.
Fast paced theme with potential turned way too slow for my taste due to superficial characters, and no sense of wonder for what was going to happen next.
