I did persevere with The Convent (a novel by Panos Karnezis, referred to in earlier posts*) – despite the fact that, from the start, I wasn’t liking the way it was written.
I wanted to know how things ended up. But there was something else, too: I was keen to get some insight into why this author was successful.
Sure, the author succeeded in hooking me in … and keeping me on the line to the last line.
And I got to blog about it several times. That’s all I can say about it, really.
Karnezis, Panos. 2010. The convent. London: Jonathan Cape.
