Oh, bummer! I bought this one a year or so ago, after it was listed for the Booker Prize, but haven't dived into it yet. The premise was intriguing, and I was hoping for something like Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.

I should have listed Burial Rites, too, even tho I didn't enjoy that book either. Quite similar. This one has quite a slow pace, tho, and I find it hard work to be interested in the story.

I loved Burial Rites, so maybe I will like it after all!

I have a feeling that there are elements of this story that will work better for you than for me.

Did you read the spoiler by any chance? ;)

Well, 30 pages further and the list of acts of exploitation has grown still. I may skip ahead to the trial part and skip most of the book altogether.
Sigh. Thanks for the trigger warning ...
