Year 7, Book 90

90. A Thousand Pardons by Jonathan Dee
The story revolves around married couple Ben and Helen and their adopted daughter. After Ben makes a disasterous mistake in the midst of a mid-life crisis and essentially destroys everything the family has, Helen rebuilds her life, while their daughter seems to flounder in the midst of it all. I found the book to be disjointed at times taking huge leapfrogging over the story it seemed to be setting up into something connected but would seem to be multiple steps away from where you just were. It was a quick read that found fairly enjoyable while I was reading it, but it’s nothing that is going to be stick with me or that I’m going to rave about to anyone. If you come across a copy go ahead and read it, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to read it. I give it a 5 out of 10.
