The Free World - David Bezmozgis I’m not putting any stars up on this book; I don’t think it’s fair since I could not go on with it. I listened to most of the audio book before I lost the will to live. I decided to give up with 3 hours left because life is short and there are so many good books out there……but I tried, I really did.

I was so bored with this. It’s about some people, not sure who was who, emigrating from the Soviet Union to the U.S. and Canada via Rome. It was so mundane.

It went something like this…..

Boris: Paulina, did you find an apartment?
Paulina: No
Boris: Why not?
Paulina: It was too hard. But I did go to the store and buy apples.
Boris: But you know I like pears better than apples.
Paulina: I know but pears are out of season.
Boris: Oh, why didn’t you say that you stupid women.

I wanted to scream. I’m sure that there are people out there who just loved this book; you may be one of them……sorry. I may be defective.

Life is too short to read boring books.
