I was pondering for a couple of days now, whether or not I should DNF this book. But since I don´t get a lot of enjoyment out of this novel, I´m just doing it.
My specific problem with this book is a plot related one. A couple of years ago I read Hannah Kent´s "Burial Rites", a historical fiction novel, in which a woman is sentenced to death and a man is trying to get her off of death row. He does so by trying to ferret out her secrets, which the woman won´t disclose, and to find out what really has happened in that one fateful night. And I really enjoyed this book.
This book, however, is a variation of this plot. As was Margaret Atwood´s Alias Grace, which was a DNF for me as well because of the exact same reason.
It seems like this plot works for me in exactly one book and after that I´m just not interested anymore in these kind of stories.
