Never Mind by Edward St. Aubyn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I read this because I love Benedict Cumberbatch and I wanted to watch Patrick Melrose. I might need to pass, though. This book was dark and disturbing. I hated David. I hated Eleanor. No wonder Patrick is so messed up.
The writing was great. But I just hated the characters, the situations, and the decisions. I don't enjoy reading about cruel people. I don't enjoy reading about abuse of any kind: emotional, physical, sexual. No thanks, not for me. Life has enough darkness in it without reading about more.
I may still watch the series, but not sure I will read the next book. 2 stars only because the writing was great.
