Review: Summer House With Swimming Pool by Herman Koch

9 August, 2014 Book Reviews 0 [simple-rating stars="two-half-stars"]

My Thoughts:
Where do I begin? Well, I will begin with this won’t be a long review. Why? Because, this book is absolutely not my favorite novel. It was very hard to get into. But, I pushed and pushed and after three weeks of reading it……well, I finally finished it. I just couldn’t stay focused on it.

The characters weren’t my favorite. There was something lacking in them. The plot line had some twists and turns to it, but it was strong enough to keep me pulled in and focused the entire reading period.

With all that said, I will give this author another go. I find that sometimes authors have “off” days of writing and fabulous days of writing and perhaps, with this particular book, this author was a little off for my liking. I will recommend this book to others to try despite the low rating I give it. Just because I don’t like something, doesn’t mean others will. This was a good effort at a mysterious page turning thriller, but it just lacked the captivating bangs that I love in a thriller.
