Anti Book Review -The Alienist

Someone recommended a story called 'The Alienist' by Caleb Carr'. As i like thrillers i duly purchased it on Ebay for a few pounds. Thick paperback promised to be a substantial read but i struggled to read one chapter in a day. The underlying plot was mildly interesting but it was padded out with all kinds of characters and irrelevent descriptions to show off the writers historical research into USA in late 1800s. I was bored by most of it and stuck with it just to see 'whodunnit'. Largely a waste of time and is wasnt surprising at all. I know there is a tv series on this so i wont reveal to much - the series might be more exciting however I wouldnt hold your breath!
