Ellinor's Litventures

This blog is about my literary adventures in different genres. I like variety in my reading and will read books from most genres but particulary book with some literary merit.

Very boring

The Museum of Things Left Behind - Seni Glaister

Set in a tiny picturesque country between Austria and Italy with lots of quirky characters, The Museum of Things Left Behind sounded just like something I would love. However it turned out to be extremely slow-going and quite boring. It's supposed to be a parody on bureaucracy and people's narrowmindedness and pomposity. Parody and satire are very difficult genres and I can see how some people will enjoy this book. I wasn't one of them however. I would have enjoyed this more if it had been a lot shorter and not so very detailed in many of its descriptions.

(I received a free digital copy via Netgalley/ the publisher. Thanks for the opportunity!)
