Day 18 – A book that disappointed you


fladdermusmannenI wasn’t going to write about this book. Somehow I feel like my disappointment with it is some kind of failure on my part. But I think I will mention it here anyway. The book that disappointed me was Fladdermusmanen by Jo Nesbo. It is the first book in the series about Harry Hole. I just couldn’t get into it. The characters bored me. I couldn’t feel for the victim or the characters. I just didn’t fall in love…or even feel engaged. Not for me.

And I feel really disappointed because it is in a genre I love and I have heard such great things about Nesbo. I just don’t know why I don’t “get” it.

Sheila it hasn't been translated into English. They started the translations a few books into the series.
