Unlike the Harry Quebert Affair, there is no intrigue or mystery. There is lots of reference to 'the tragedy' but no hints as to what it could be. The book does jump about from present to past, but the actual central tragedy unfolds in a very linear fashion at the very end of the book.
The rest of the book is a massively drawn out story of the most unrealistic childhood ever. Nobody is normal, everybody is incredible or terrible. I assume the writer was going for an unreliable narrator, but only because that is the only explanation for how ridiculous the story is. Of the four children, we have an NFL standard footballer, a future best selling writer, a future international pop sensation, and a student 'more advanced than every teacher in the school'. We have 8 year olds bribing teachers to get free private school places. 10 year olds beating up 16 year olds, three teenagers beating up 6 men. A whole school dedicated to systematic abuse and humiliation scared into completely changing their ways by one child. You get the idea. Similarly, people don't just have faults, they go from hero to criminal.
Despite the book spreading over more than a decade, there isn't really any character development. All of the characters are very 2 dimensional. The actual tragedy could have been quite a tragic story handled well, but I simply didn't care enough about the characters. None of the characters are nice people, every choice they made was ridiculous and seemed to have little motivation. It didn't help that the dialogue was awful, and the sentences were short, clipped and had no particular flair or style.
I only finished the book because I enjoyed Harry Quebert so much, I was convinced it would get better and be worth it in the end. It wasn't.
The author held my attention by hinting aboutg what would eventually come
