A Place Called Winter

A Place Called Winter - Patrick Gale DNF at 12%

"If you've never read a Patrick Gale, stop now and pick up this book. From the author of the bestselling NOTES FROM AN EXHIBITION comes an irresistible, searching and poignant historical novel of love, relationships, secrets and escape."

This last paragraph in the blurb was the reason WHY I picked up this book.

Nope. Not true.

I found the telling teeeeerribly boring, and Henry, the main protagonist, extremely unappealing.
An old-fashioned writing, not in a good way, dull and forgettable.

I've already forgot the first 15% I did a try.

Life is too short for boring uninteresting books.
No rating.
