Legend of a Suicide – David Vann

legend-of-a-suicideI selected Legend of a Suicide by David Vann from my daughter’s bookshelf because it looked like a short, easy read after the 700 page biography I had just finished. Well it is a short, easy read – I read it in a day – and for a while it’s a good read. But then something happened which completely threw me and from then on nothing made sense.

On finishing the book I checked out some reviews including an interesting review in the Guardian. Well now I understand how I became confused but I’m not sure I’m any the wiser about the book. Some reviews have suggested that it’s worth an immediate re-read, but I don’t think I’ll bother.

Have your say!
