The Divorce Papers

I was thinking that The Divorce Papers by Susan Rieger would be a fun book since it is almost like my kid's graphic novels. The whole book is a compilation of "papers" within a divorce file at a firm. E-mails, forms, letters, etc. Surprisingly enough, you actually learn about the characters and their lives through these papers and parts were quite interesting.

Unfortunately, the parts that weren't interesting were all the legal papers, and there were a lot. While they may have made this "file" more factual, they are literally mind numbing to read. I found myself flipping past so many pages that about half way through the book I got tired of the work this book involves. I feel like I am actually reading through a divorce file and as one would imagine, the majority of it all is just not interesting.

The back cover states that this is "smart, affecting, and funny to the bone." I didn't find this book to be funny or laugh-out-loud at all. I quit a little half way through this 460 page book. I think it would have been a good story had it not been chock full of actual (boring) legal documents.

Disclaimer: This book was given to me by Blogging For Books in exchange for my honest review.
