In Miami, 1969, college-girl (Frances) meets college-boy (Dennis) and their lives are changed forever.
I saw that Sea Creatures was just published (Daniel's 2nd novel) and felt a push to get Stiltsville read before the summer ended. I even switched out a book for it!
To my dismay, Stiltsville was not what I expected. I was bored silly. The storyline was so plain, and the characters lacked warmth. There were some plot points that tried to elevate the story, but . . . they were just surface to me (and some nonsense stuff, too). Even for the points when emotions could have been sincere and touch deeply, they were stilted. No pun intended. I think the title fits the book very well. Bit of a disappointment for me, but others have enjoyed it immensely.
