Book #3 - The Book of Secrets

The Book of Secrets by M.G. Vassanji

Winner of the Giller Prize 1994

Rating: 2/5

For a rather short book (324 pages) it was quite a slog to get through. I usually enjoy the themes in this novel - how we can never truly know someone else, or the past, but I didn't find this particular book engaging at all. Overall, I'm disappointed that this Giller Prize winner did nothing for me. I've heard good things about his more recent book, also a Giller Prize winner, so I will try this author again someday.
