Bonita Avenue

"Siem Sigerius is a beloved, brilliant professor of mathematics with a promising future in politics. His family—including a loving wife, two gorgeous, intelligent stepdaughters and a successful future son-in-law—and carefully appointed home in the bucolic countryside complete the portrait of a comfortable, morally upright household. But there are elements of Siem's past that threaten to upend the peace and stability that he has achieved, and when he stumbles upon a deception that’s painfully close to home, things begin to fall apart." Bonita Avenue by Peter Buwalda

It sounded like the perfect makings for a book. I doubt I can even say I "read" the book as I didn't even get 1/4 way in before quitting. Nothing in the book interested me. It was immediately confusing with the back and forth between present and past, person to person. I didn't know where I was or who I was with. 

The characters weren't likeable, interesting, or real. I didn't care about their story at all. I didn't want to read 500+ pages about them.

I wonder if the book lost something in the translation from Dutch to English because it seemed to lack any depth or interest.
