I was really looking forward to this book because I d seen loads of great reviews for it unfortunately I did not enjoy this for a number of reasons let me explainI want to start off this review on a positive note I did initially enjoy this book It was slow to take off and the accident in the Bletterbach was gone in seconds when it seemed like such an important part of the plot but the mystery of the years old Bletterbach killings did grab my interest uite uickly and I was looking forward to knowing what the hell happened Unfortunately that s where the good things I have to say endThis book was so ridiculously drawn out and slow it really couldn t grab my attention for very long I would read about 30 pages and then put it down because I was so bored by all the tedious pointless descriptions and scene that weren t necessary to progress the plot Most of this novel was conversations between two people that 90% of the time ended with no further information or revelations to the mystery Then the bits that weren t people talking were extremely long often times overly scientifics bit of information that I think were meant to be eye opening and exciting but instead they often confused me and were extremely boring to readThe writing in this one was also a little weird I always find I have a bit of trouble with translated books they feel clunky to read and this one felt just the same The conversations that were had between people felt forced and unrealistic most of the time and there was no atmosphere whatsoever When Salinger was down in the Bletterbach before the accident there was no nail biting edge of the seat moment and again when he was experiencing his panic attacks these was no tension or feeling of claustrophobia I was hoping this was going to give me the same creeped out terrified feelings that The White Road did but it let me downI thought that maybe while I was being put to sleep by the slow moving story I might enjoy the characters however I was disappointed by those too More specifically by Salinger our main character I hated him I really really hated him He didn t progress as a character after everything he had been through and no matter how many times his wife came to him angry and distraught at what he was doing Throughout the novel he was just an awful person always thinking about throwing a punch and being inconsiderate to other people There really was nothing nice about him And then the other characters in the story played such small parts that we really didn t get to know them very well Even Werner who seemed to play an important part of the story didn t get much screen timeIn the end I skim read the last 100 pages of this novel I m still counting it as a full read because I pushed myself through t h r e e h u n d r e d tedious pages The conclusion of the mystery was disappointing to say the least and I m glad I didn t attempt to read the rest of the storyOverall I really didn t enjoy this book apart from maybe the first 50 pages I wouldn t recommend this one I think there are plenty of better similar books out there that you could pick up instead Thanks to Bookbridgr and MacLehose Press for providing me a copy in exchange for an honest review I m just sorry I didn t enjoy it

La sostanza del male

O vuole parlarne forse perché il solo pensarci potrebbe risuscitarne l'orrore o forse perché sono in tanti ad avere ualcosa da nascondere Nonostante l'ostilità crescente che lo circonda e l'opposizione di Annelise Salinger si mette a scavare nel passato penetrando sempre più a fondo nella vicenda Fino a scoprire l'imprevedibile terrificante verità. Jan 2018 My Book Box selectionD Andrea does a very good job with setting and atmosphere It s just that the women are either virgins or whores soley there to be a plot point for the men in the book The narrator s wife does not have a full fledged conversation with him until half way in and seems solely there to be servicing the main character who does not fly as an American What American would describe his friend s face as being bruised so it looked like the Scottish flag And the big reveal makes no sense on so many different levels

    Very slow to get going Was slowly being built to a big reveal but was let down by the end Could've been the translation that made it seem a little long and boring in places

    WOW This novel is so much in depth than its synopsis At the beginning I found the novel to be rather slow burning and jumps from one event to another However once it gets going it is HIGHLY addictive The character
