Prague: A Novel Prague: A Novel by Arthur Phillips

My review

rating: 2 of 5 stars
So I got suckered in by the comparison to Kundera. Wrong! This book was a struggle to get through and maybe I should have quit was back in the beginning but I have this thing about finishing. I have to finish what I start. (Which is why I don't start unless I know I can finish.)

Anyway, this book was NOT about Prague but about Budapest. So why title it Prague? I guess the author was being clever. Too clever for me because I was half way through and re-read the review to realize John Price was the protagonist. Really?

It seems like this book was trying to be and do too many things as once. The narrative was all over the place. It was tedious and esoteric. One I am glad to be done with and will not read again.
