I just assumed it was an eye for an eye type situation where e only strayed as a revenge to Claire for kissing Found in Translation his brother Is this far fetched Maybe But that sow I felt at the end of the book I was so disappointed by this book I loved McKenzie s first three books and read it despite thinking that the concept seemed a little boring and done compared to Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso her previous novels Man dies wife and mysterious other woman left inis wake I figured in McKenzie s Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire hands this tired concept would take on new life It did notWhat I found unforgivable wasow completely indistinct the three narrators are She tells each character s part of the story with identical voices Sometimes it took me a page to figure out who s voice we were Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus hearing And that s even considering one was maleFollowing from that I found the two women interchangeable Oh oneas a son and one as a daughter One plays piano and the otherzzzThese touchstones were the only way to tell them apart Neither ad any life spark distinct ualities I d pick up the book after a day off and not be able to remember anything about the character or which was which There wasn t even enough description for me to create an image of either in my Do No Harm head or what theiromes were like As a result I found myself disengaged and not caring what The Poseidon Adventure happened to themThis is essentially a book where nothingappens Which can be fine and even shocking when enough suspense is built up and you think something How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction hugeas Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours happened Here it was just like oh nothing reallyappened Yeah I saw that coming I appreciate that in real life not all affairs are searing Hollywood dramas and I appreciate an author taking one like this on But there just wasn t enough buildup or I just didn t care enough about
