Lillie Loves to Read

Reader of all kinds of books but favorites genres include mystery, sic-fi, romance, thrillers, YA, fantasy, general fiction, memoirs. I'll try anything once.

Netherland - Joseph O'Neill I see that others loved this book, me, not so much. The main character was just so lethargic, so uncaring of the world around him. Actually, he didn't even seem to care about himself. His wife (another winner! Very self absorbed) left him and he couldn't seem to do anything about it. He had no friends but one, Chuck. Who dragged him around to who knows where on who knows what kind of errands. Why? I don't know and neither does the main character. I could go on about the stupid story but why waste my time.

Hopefully, someone can tell me why they loved this story.
