Loves books and cats

Best things in life: books, beaches, cats, chocolate, sunsets, sleep

The Burgess Boys - Elizabeth Strout I received an advance copy of this in a Goodreads giveaway. I did not like this book at all. It is the first Elizabeth Strout book I've read and does not inspire me to read any of her others. I didn't really like any of the characters except Bob and didn't really care about any of them. The main storyline of Zach and his legal troubles moved so slowly and I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. It really never did. Yes, many of the characters do ultimately have fairly big changes occur in their lives, but the road to those changes was the longest, most boring trip for me. Actually this novel bored me so much that I stopped in the middle and read something else before returning to it to finish. I only finished because I felt sort of obligated since I won a copy in a giveaway.
