Year 14, Book 43

43. The Porpoise by Mark Haddon

I really enjoyed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime so I was very excited to get a copy of this book, but unfortunately I didn’t like it at all. I don’t particularly care for Greek mythology and had I realized that this book was a combined retelling of a couple of different Greek myths I probably would have skipped it. Unfortunately the description of the book didn’t indicate that and the book does not start off in a way that makes it that obvious. In addition to that it’s just a very bizarre book where characters just seemingly jump into entirely different times and stories with no explanation. I felt like I was in one book and then all of a sudden a character was living out some myth and I was like what happened. How did we get here? I give it a 2 out of 10.
