The Children Act

91vgf4lGJQL._SL1500_I adore Ian McEwan. I was so excited about his newest book, The Children Act, that I bought it in hardback. This is unheard of for me, as my few blog readers already know. I couldn’t wait for it to come from the library and it was so spare and had such a luxurious cover, that I had to have it. However, after a friend’s so-so review of the book, I put it aside for a while. I was excited to have a snow day to get through it today. Unfortunately, after spending the day reading, I am completely disappointed. It was such an utterly boring story with characters I cared nothing for that I feel like my reading time was wasted. It’s so sad to have felt this way after having read an author I usually like so much.
