95. Warlight by Michael Ondaatje
It’s 1945 and WWII has recently ended. Fourteen year old Nathanial and his older sister Rachel are left in the care of a mysterious man they refer to as the Moth when their parents take off with little explanation. They begin to uncover a deeper perhaps criminal web that the Moth is involved in. The story then shifts to Nathanial as an adult where he begins to piece together all the mysteries he didn’t understand as a child.
This book was terrible. It was boring. The characters were uninteresting. The mystery wasn’t compelling. I have nothing good to say about this book. I give it a 3 out of 10.
