did not like it

“Expats” was reasonably well-plotted, and critical, through interesting though repetitive descriptions, of our modern world’s unremitting emphasis on wealth and consumption. Even better, it is a rare description from a male author of the loving but dead-end nature (at least for an ex-CIA agent) of being a stay-at-home mom with little kids. But by the end I was so tired of it all that I no longer cared who was spying on whom and how, and I was fed up with the scenes where our heroine almost met destruction yet emerged unscathed, for no particularly good reason…

You won’t miss much if you skip it.
