This book has so far failed to grab me. It has not lost me either but as it starts to catalogue the history of infidelity between the first couple of couples it is establishing not just the experience of adultery but a context where it’s almost expected.
Against that background of course the new couple become playthings to amuse those that have become bored of each other and stuck in their ruts. The pressure for one or both of them to stray seems to be building with the husband ken the initial most likely suspect.
I will go back to this but need something that is slightly more instant in its delivery of gratification.
