Lacking something

I read Ruth Reichl's new book Not becoming my mother and was somewhat disappointed. Reichl has spent most of her adult life telling amusing stories about her mother's crazy antics. This book is a penance of sorts and a rediscovery of her mother. Her mother's life was stiffled by the conventions of society and she drives Reichl to break those bonds. I wanted to like this book more than I did. It seemed to lack some heart or something.
