I'm not sure how, but this has actually gotten worse. If I were to compare the reading experience to anything, I'd say Ian McEwan's books come to my mind: overblown writing, can't write women, implausible, and obsessed with aspects of morality and sex that are just ... not interesting to me.
The only reason I will finish this is Michael Kitchen's narration.
Has anyone read anything else by Jacobson? Are his other books similar to this one?
...Not that I am looking to pick up anything else by him, I'm just curious.
