Quite a boring read

July's People - Nadine Gordimer

I found the writing to be laborious. There were few clues as to who was speaking or who was thinking what. I hate this type of arrogant writer. What is the point? Was Nadine Gordimer trying to get us to sympathize with the plight of South Africans? If so, she failed miserably. I did not care for any white or black person in the story. I just wanted the book to end.


If you really want to read about the conditions of South Africa before Apartheid made them worse, then read Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton.
