Book Review - Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch and Sam Garrett

Photo Source - Amazon
Mr. M was once an celebrated international bestselling writer but that was a few years ago. His book was about a real life disappearance of a history teacher who was having an affair with his young student.  His timid neighbor seems to stalking his wife and him while keeping track of everything they do. The story is told from alternating points of view from multiple characters with each a secret to hide. The story depicts an writer in decline, a teacher couple in love and a missing teacher  along with how their faiths are all entangled with each other.

The story was very interesting with many twists and turns. The writing style took a bit to understand but once you get into the story it is hard to put down in the beginning. However, towards the middle of the 400 page Goliath, the story was a bit boring and seemed redundant.  I couldn't wait to put this book in my "donate" pile.
