Not worth the effort,

This review is from: Ed King (Paperback)
It should be hard to make the story of an adopted man who grows up to murder his father and marry his mother dull, but Guterson manages it. The chapters focusing on Ed are especially boring and I ended up speed reading them. All the characters are so unpleasant that it's impossible to care what happens to them. Guterson's final firework of putting himself, anagramised, into the story as Ed's private pilot, is a particularly damp squib.
