Louis De Bernieres (1995)
This took forever for me to get through. Just didn’t grab me. Too much exposition and too all over the place. The characters were well drawn and well developed. Started to get better three-quarters of the way through, only to have a silly Hollywood ending based on a misunderstanding (my all-time least favorite plot device; ranks right up there with “and it was all a dream!”)
Very unsatisfying. Can’t recommend it and will sooner watch paint dry than see the movie.
