All He Ever Wanted . . .


A neighbor lent me this book. I can’t say it grabbed me immediately, but after the first 3-4 chapters, I was in for the count. The narrator is a pompous, kind of boring, turn of the last-century professor. He’s in charge of the story. I kind of hated him from the beginning, but it took a while for me to truly hate him and to start peeking at future chapters hoping for a new narrator. The main female character, Etna, was a cross between admirable and “eh….” It’s been a couple of hours since I’ve finished. I liked the book – but it’s not for you if you’re looking for a happy, simple ending. I DO think it would be a fun book for a Book Club. I don’t have a book club – so everyone here hurry up and read the book and we can discuss. đŸ˜‰

One thought on “All He Ever Wanted . . .

  1. I just finished Recovering Charles by Jason Wright. Good read (being a New Orleans native) and it would be a superfast read for ya.
