Read in October, 2011

A 'literary' novel, but I just found it so dull. The lists of food in a cupboard, clothes in a wardrobe, bored me to tears. There was an anniversary party where she listed most of the guests who attended, most of whom we hadn't met before, so what. The main characters weren't dislikeable, but this story was just so stretched out with pointless detail that I couldn't care whether they got together or not. It seemed less like a love affair, more like two lonely people deciding to make a tentative go of it.
