Quite slow but good twist at end. Will remind me of Lisbon ( )

I have been at this for more than a week now and I have decided to abandon it. I don't know if it is because it is a translation but I feel that the writing is pedestrian. At 600 plus pages it is rather voluminous for a crime thriller, and even though I have made a fair effort to give this a chance, having read 20 percent, it has failed to grip my attention in any way. It would be foolish of me to persist with this when there is so much else available to read. ( )

Billed as a thriller, I felt it to be more a satirical look at modern day life and its distractions and delusions. It was perhaps over long but I enjoyed all of it particularly the twisty ending.. ( )

I am embarrassed on behalf of everyone who recommended this to me. ( )

What I liked best about this book, is that the truth is different, every time Goldman and Gahalowood ask a new person for their story about Nola or Nola and Harry.
A book about truth, secrets, shame, lies, mistakes in the past and also about love in different forms.
I read this book with a lot of pleasure. The story in the story in the story is nice and that keeps it very interesting. I must admit however, that at the point where Luther is suddenly not the killer, for a brief period I wondered if I should put down the book, for yet another change in the story I really did not want. But then finally the structure of the book and the meaning of the changes (as I see them) fell into place. ( )
