I really don´t like the tone of this book. Based on the plot and the unpleasant characters, I have to assume that this book is meant to be funny ... or at least that there is some sarcastic wit to it.
Unfortunately this book reads like Muriel Sparks has meant every single word she has written down. It isn´t particularly funny or witty and the sarcasm is lost on me.
So I´m left with an mediocre plot, which I don´t see the point of, and some really unlikeable characters, who have to be the most vicious elderly people in the history of literature.
I need a break from this for the rest of the day.
