This is a nice book. A perfectly nice book.
Unfortunately it is also very dull.
Some of it may be “lost in translation” (for example, the word alone is used twice in one sentence at 28% & there is a joke about a character’s name earlier that I just didn’t get) but I made it to 30% without anything interesting happening (although I had hopes about the fortune teller)
Jonathan Grief reminds me (a lot) of Sheldon Cooper (Big Bang Theory) and Don Tillman (The Rosie Project) and I’ve already watched the TV programme for the former and read the book for the latter.
