    I'm trying a 100 page rule with books I'm not enjoying this has been on the pile from book club with several others that I want to read in theory but am never in the mood for but because I want to get that pile down figured I'd give it a goI don't like the writing style am never a big fan of the present tense and found this particularly confusing as she jumps all over the place The book starts when Hélène is 12 and living with her parents who argue a lot One day her French father walks out and disappears for no obvious reason She asks the new boy in her class to kiss her Not much happens We jump forward to when she is 18 and now known as Helen and has a brief fling with a musician Then she is 27 and has a one night stand with a blind date It seemed we were going to keep hearing about her boring affairs so I skipped forward to the end and gave up firm in the knowledge that I won't be missing anything of interest

    Either I didn’t understand this book at all or it was poorly written I feel like it was all over the place it had some good points of meaning but it was really hard to focus on and to understand the underlying meaning behind most of the passages

    Alison was a friend of mine in College and when I saw that this book was recently nominated for the Dublin IMPAC Literary award I eventually got around to reading it Its original and very well written and I was suitably impressed
