So about halfway through this book, I posted that I liked it, I just didn’t know why, because nothing had happened..
Honestly, at that point, I was thinking: Ok, granted, it’s weird that I’m halfway through, and nothing exciting or dramatic or just something
had happened yet, but ok, there were still a lot of pages left, so I let it go, and read on, because as I said, I did
So now, that I’m done, I can let you all know, that no, nothing did in fact happen in the last 50% of the book either..
You might be wondering: “Well, Camilla, it’s a 336 page book,
something must have happened?
And yes, you got me, stuff
happened, I guess. Like.. I don't know. Looking at the neighbors. Feeding of the dog. You know, exciting stuff
It’s a story about 3 siblings in their 50’s that come together because of one, count it, ONE
incident that happens early on. I guess that is literally “something that happens” in the book, but sadly it isn’t dramatic in any way. Any way
It could have been about Jim, Bob or Susan’s (the siblings, btw) trip to the nearest 7/11, that’s how exciting that incident
turned out to be.
Ok, we do also have Jim’s incident
90% later in the book, but again = Zzzzzz
The weird thing is, I did like it, or I liked the writing, I should say. It’s an easy read, and you do want to like the characters, it’s just hard when nothing happens!
