it was ok
bookshelves: 2012-reads, booker-long-short, england-uk-ireland, constant-reader, 1001-read
Read from April 09 to 14, 2012

Old man, divorced and content, reminisces about his schoolboy days. A lot. An inheritance puts him in touch with an ex-girlfriend. They meet. He still doesn't really "get" her. More thinking, more reminiscences, he realizes his life choices have always been "safe" and "right". And, apparently, will continue to be so.

Everything that happens happens in the past.

B O R I N G. Put me to sleep on multiple nights. Thank goodness it was short.
