By the Lake

By the Lake (Vintage International) - John McGahern Well, it took a while to get into this book. Like, half the book to get into it. Overuse of pronouns and the lack of a clear central plot made it difficult to figure out who was who and what I should be focusing on. But once I got comfortable with the characters and setting, it was easier to feel immersed in their daily lives and just enjoy the ride. Not a thrill ride, of course, but a slow, meandering Sunday drive through the Irish countryside, which was good enough for me.
