Two Lives I'm not at all interested in reading about!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Two Lives (Paperback)
Autobiographies and Biographies have always interested me, so I've read many during the past 50 years. I've read about Dickens, D H Lawrence, Alan Bennett, Fay Weldon, Jane Austen and many more. So I was very disappointed to read this one, which came so well recommended - by whom I cannot recall.
This has to be the most tedious, uninspiring, yawn-making biographies about two very obscure and unattractive peoples it has ever been my misfortune to read! In fact I only read the first half and skipped/ skimmed the second half which did not improve. Why do you think anyone (about from some Indians and some Germans) would be interested in reading about a short, one-armed, Asian dentist and his tall, plain, German wife? Had Seth run out of topics to write about? He is an excellent writer, his use of our beautiful English language is second to none, however, he needs to find something really thought-provoking and interesting to write about in future!
