Hamnet - Maggie O'Farrell

DNF @ 20%


I have issues with historical fiction, but that was not my main issue here. My main issue was the writing. 

If I'm 20% into the book, I should be hooked or loving the language, or be interested in any of the characters. 


I should not have to wince at over-written descriptions, try to remember which character we're talking about, or be annoyed by a precocious child who just declared herself an atheist sometime in the 80s. The 1580s. 


I'll be giving this one a miss and redeploy my audible credit elsewhere.
