did not like it
bookshelves: books-i-bailed-on

Another one for the "books I bailed on" series. "After this" by Alice McDermott isn't even a long book by most standards. Yet, I still could not stomach any more of it. At this time, it's difficult to pinpoint what exactly turned me off from this story. It focused on a boring woman who ages with her boring husband and then eventually they will have kids and those children become the central focus of the novel. That is the framework of the story, from what I could gather in other reviews and the book jacket. If you cannot maintain a reader's attention for a short book, you might want to consider quitting your day job, bad economy and all.
