I should probably mention what happened to the review of The Geographer’s Library that I had earlier said was coming.
It’s not going to happen. I am giving up on reading this book and have moved on to nicer, more interesting pastures. It just isn’t my style of book. I found the characters lacking authenticity (and this comes from someone who regularly reads YA fiction), and while the story line itself was interesting, the writing of it caused quite a bit of nodding off.
Maybe it was all that “complexity” and “grandeur” that so many people rave about after reading this “wonderfully written thriller!”
So, lesson of the story… stay out of books that try to be Dan Brown and Ken Follett all at once.
