David Mitchell, "Judith Castle"

Judith finds out her lover is dead and ponders what their life together would have been like.

(from The Book of Other People)

Well, I usually like an unreliable narrator, and this one was fine and funny, but David Mitchell telegraphed his pass, as they say, to the rimshot twist at the end was a big letdown. Overall, I didn’t find this one very entertaining. This book, edited by Zadie Smith, has promise, though, so I’ll keep it around.
