Read-a-thon #6

7:24. a. m. (CET) I've completed the book Troubling Love by Elena Ferrante. (216 pages). Well, I've read the last 40 pages in a hurry. The way of storytelling wasn't interesting for me, just the solve of the mistery, how Delina's mother has died.

Taking into account, that it's style wasn't fit for my taste, I think, I was quite patient with this book. We know from the first sentence, Amalia, the mother has died, but we have to read till the last pages, to learn, what happened really on that night.

I think, I won't return to the other book (Measuring the World by Daniel Kehlmann) for a while, I think, I'll read one of the "preferred" books from my read-a-thon pile.

The novel by Kehlmann is really good, I love it, but I need something different now.
