On paper Dave Eggers should be an author who I love without reservation, but I always come away from his books feeling completely underwhelmed. Such was the case this time round in A Hologram for the King.
A story of an middle age man with an shrew of an ex-wife, who goes to a country oh, so very different from his own; he gets his own quirky sidekick, has a brief fling with a very attractive younger woman....blah, blah blah.
I've read/seen all it before and Hologram for the King has nothing new to add to this particular trope.
Best thing about it was the cover.
