Burial Rites, by Hannah Kent

kentI recently reviewed this book for Trip Fiction. The review begins: “Fiction can provide us with the chance to travel in time as well as in space, on a double trip as it were, and Hannah Kent’s first novel, Burial Rites, the story of a serving woman condemned to death following a double murder, is a good example of this. It’s set in 19th century Iceland, on an isolated farm in rural Kornsa…”

I was less impressed than most people seem to have been. You can see what I thought about the book here.
