Terrible waste of talent,
This review is from: Ordinary Thunderstorms (Kindle Edition)
I have read everything published by William Boyd and have always found him to be an intelligent and erudite writer. This however, appears to have been dashed off in a weekend with an eye on a (cheap) made-for-TV movie. The characters are one dimensional and the plot ludicrous and farcical. I was not only disappointed but also extremely angry that someone so talented could write such puerile nonsense. It was so bad that I gave up after a few chapters as I couldn't stomach any more of the far-fetched plot devices.
