it was ok
bookshelves: contemporary, foreign-fiction
Read in March, 2011

I'm not sure that this novel from the author of the excellent The Reader really works. The conflicts over how to deal with the release from prison of a German terorist make an interesting subject, and Schlink shows how it elicits different repsonses from different friends and relatives gathered for 'the weekend', but it all rather trails out inconclusively. I rather lost interest towards the end, and felt that maybe the author had done as well.
