    Reading works like this help me to define trash My current working definition is stories that, despite a compelling plot, are not sincerely concerned with their characters as possibly real people They learn nothing significant, nor are they intended to mirror ourselves in any profound way, but merely fill a slot in the plot.Mr Quentin does make reading about such characters compelling, however After a certain point it is as likely one will stop reading, as decline a second potato chip or chocolate chip cookie.

    En malttanut olla lukematta toista Quentini per n Edelleen herkullista kielt , klassinen, toimiva rakenne T ss tosin hieman erilainen premissi, mies joutuu ep illyksi, kun vaimo katoaa, ja yritt selvitt mit tapahtui.

    Mostly a bog standard, only barely interesting whodunnit where the protagonist is set up for the murder of his ghastly wife But with unpleasant, queasy undertones the small town lynch mob is way over the top and the protagonist s relationship with a group of neighbourhood children, who ultimately help him prove his innocence, comes across as a nauseous mixture of the Famous Five and Lolita.
