It's now been two weeks and a bit that I started reading Brick Lane by Monica Ali. I'm only just half way. I find it very boring, even though it is interesting in terms of the human story it tells. But then, that might be the problem: it's the story of a boring existence spent waiting for fate to take charge. On the other hand, it looks like I have now reached the point where the main character decides to stop waiting for fate and take her future in her own hands. At last some action! Not too early after 260 pages.
