Expecting a triller and well written novel by a Nobel prize winner, I labored getting through this book. It was boring, depressing, sometimes plain crude.

I read this book for my book club and boy was I disappointed. I don't know if it was the translation, or just the author, but this book is the worse book I've ever read. There is no character development or dialog. The sentences go on for miles without any complete thought. And just when you finish a chapter and you think you finally might understand what the heck is going on, the next chapter is about something completely different, like from an entirely different book. I would classify this style of writing as being in the mind of someone attention deficit meets narcotic addiction with a splash of Turrets. In other words, read this book if you really feel like bashing it, because that's all we did in our book club meeting :-\Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
