Book Review: Distrust That Particular Flavor
Feb 04, Selena Peacock rated it liked it. I entered this book expecting a more adventurous read, not saying I didn't enjoy it but I thought it lacked something. The main character is a man you almost feel sorry for by the end, hoping he would break free from his inner thoughts to truly connect with his family. I did enjoy its quirkiness and acknowledgement of how your past can impact the type of person you become.
And damn did I feel bad for his wife. May 19, Catherine Robertson rated it it was amazing. Wonderful book. Not often you find real laugh-out-loud humour in a literary novel, but this has it. It also has beautifully, unflinchingly observed characters, and a suspenseful storyline - you desperately want to flip through the pages but not to linger over every sentence would do injustice to the quality of the writing.
Jan 21, Yvonne Dongen rated it it was amazing. Warm and funny. Slightly disconcerting since you think it's going to be a thriller but most of the book is set in the past. An old man reminisicing, making sense of his marriage and the loss of his wife. Jun 09, Andrea rated it it was amazing.
I couldn't put this down.
Very poignant, reflecting on the many ways that our childhoods influence and shape us and the differences that crop up between family members. A bonus for me was the familiar setting - Wellington and the Tararuas. Jul 08, Laurence rated it really liked it. She lives in Wellington with her husband and two daughters.
