The Piano Teacher
Janice Y. K. Lee
I was on the road when I started reading this book. At first I thought that was why I had a hard time focusing. I love anything piano, and that is why I picked up this book. This story is about a woman who happened to be a piano teacher (the piano had nothing to do with the book). The chapters alternate between 1941 and 1953 in Hong Kong, and attempted to recreate the life of British expats in Hong Kong during and after World War II.
This is the most boring book ever! I thought that the story tried to pick up by page 60, and I kept trying to plod on and see where the story turned. The characters are bland and the story is not compelling.
