Dear Mr. M: A Novel

Dear Mr. M: A Novel - Herman Koch A slow moving and complex tale that takes patience and time to unravel

Having loved the [b:The Dinner|15797938|The Dinner|Herman Koch|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1355949630s/15797938.jpg|6463092] I was really looking forward to[b:Dear Mr. M|28186095|Dear Mr. M|Herman Koch|https://d2arxad8u2l0g7.cloudfront.net/books/1472552544s/28186095.jpg|41364302] by Herman Koch.

The premise for the novel drew me in and Herman Korch's cast of dislikeable characters never fail to deliver. However I did find for the most part this story tedious and dull and while the first few chapters had me intrigued I did however find myself losing interest as the story is quite complex and difficult to follow and the end result was far from satisfying.

I have no doubt that Herman Koch is a clever and talented writer and his complex novels are certainly unique and creepy but while I loved the Dinner I am afraid I struggled to with Dear Mr M. right to the end.
