The Elephant Keepers' Children - Peter Høeg, Martin Aitken I simply couldn't get into this book no matter how hard I tried. I found the characters, the setting and the storyline to be incredibly bland and vanilla! Although, I have a love of Nordic Noir, I find Peter Hoeg's novels to be my least favorite of the genre. I thought maybe I was off, but with the release of this one, it simply confirmed my beliefs.
