Books I’ve read this year #3

“Engleby” by Sebastian Faulks.

I read pretty quickly, and if I like a book can finish it off in a couple of days.

It has taken me three months to read this book. I didn’t like it. In fact, if I didn’t have a rule that I have to finish reading a book once I’ve started it, I wouldn’t have finished it at all.

The Guardian’s “Digested reads” didn’t think much of this book, either.

    Oh, I’m sorry you didn’t like it. We had this for our reading group and I very much enjoyed it – maybe ‘like’ is the wrong word since there wasn’t much to like about the main character. Though before it all went wrong his lack of socail skills did remind me a lot of a couple of people I went to college with – eeeek!

    Love to read your blog so keep going.
    Have a good week.
