Well I couldn’t read The Gathering by Anne Enright. I tried. I read up to pg 30 or so and had to quit. I’m just not sure the writing style was grabbing me or maybe the way the story was unfolding. Anyhow, right now I need something that I can really focus on so I’m going to leave this one.
I went and read some reviews of The Gathering and for the most part, many people’s opinions match mine. That it was hard to get into and confusing. A few abandoned it as I did. I feel better-at least it wasn’t just me.
I’ve gotten a recommendation from my fellow Pageturner Jenn to read The Year of Fog. So, I’m going to go pick it up at the library today and start that instead. Oh and I’m still going to read The Other Woman by Joy Fielding.
I’ve got The Year of Fog in my possession now and have started reading. Update to follow when I’m about halfway through.
