I didn't get it.,
This review is from: If Nobody Speaks of Remarkable Things (Paperback)
Maybe I'm just not cut out to enjoy a book like this but I ended up giving up halfway through Jon McGregor's plodding novel when I realised there was nothing novel about it.
I had just finished reading Twelve by Nick McDonnell and then a re-read of Catcher in The Rye but I could not find it in me to complete this book.
Something remarkable happens at the beginning of the book but it seems to have no place in the novel. Every other chapter is written from the point of a view of a pregnant woman who obviously has some connection to the street where the novel is based but she seems to be living in another time to the chapters which she sits in the middle of. I was left confused, perplexed, bored and rather cheated of what this novel cost me.
