A Spot of Bother

2 Mar

I picked up this book in Argentina, and only finished it now.  Which I guess says something. Overall, it’s not a book I would recommend, especially not to someone in my fraternity.

It started out corny and has some graphic scenes that I would rather not think about again.  But it picked up towards the end and I actually found myself laughing outloud.  The author has a comical touch.

But he seems more like a blogger, not a novelist.  The writing was better equipped for the internet I thought, maybe for a funny magazine article.  Maybe that’s just a product of our generation though.

In the end, the book was about the importance of family, and things said and unsaid, missed opportunities, and misperceptions, though I never actually found myself thinking about any of those things.
