Really got interested in this while I was researching a trip to Munich and this came up But I got a hundred pages into it and gave up after being bored as all hell There doesn't seem like any plot and the lack of uotation marks with the dialogue is both frustrating and annoying

I got this book as a giveaway as part of Goodreads first readsIn Munich airport a man waits with his father for the fog to clear They are taking his sister's body back to the US In flash backs our narrator explains what he and his father did in the weeks that they waited for his sister's starved body to be released to them and he also flashes back to scenes in his personal life explaining how he's reached the point that he's reached in his life It was okay And believe me it's well written so it's not a bad book it's just that I personally don't like it For one it uses vertical time at least that's the phrase my old english teacher used to use for it I dislike vertical time when there is no spacing or new chapters to make the transitions clear Every so often when I wasn't paying uite enough attention I'd get a couple of sentences in before realising he was recounting a past memory I have an issue with there being no chapters or uotation marks hopefully this will be corrected at some point because I get confused and the book also gets rather heavy that way I also just didn't like the main character I don't know why he rubs me the wrong way but he does There's a point in the story when the character makes some joke about the germans I read it out loud to my brother and asked him if it was offensive and he had to point out it was a joke because in all the heaviness the narrator doesn't seem capable of jokes to me so when he makes them it throws me I didn't even notice it was a joke I always catch the slightly racist jokes He doesn't ever clearly resolve the situation of why Miriam is dead you're left to assume she had problems but a little detail would make it feel well rounded And our narrator behaves in ways that I don't understand and can't uite come to grips with view spoilerhe cuts himself and then some of his wandering off in the airport to buy stuff he doesn't need hide spoiler
