This book starts its journey with BookCrossing from Delphi, Greece
" It is off-season in a remote Highland sea port: twenty-one-year-old Morvern Callar, a low-paid employee in the local supermarket, wakes one morning to find her strange boyfriend has committed suicide and is dead on their kitchen floor. Morvern's laconic reaction is both intriguing and immoral. What she does next is even more appalling... "

Journal Entry 2 by wingDelphi_Readerwing at Δελφοί - Delphi, Fokida Greece on Wednesday, December 29, 2021
This was a decent read, but rather neutral to me. I followed the narration on a somehow detached way.

Not been a native English speaker and the author using some kind of Scottish slag, the writing needed some getting used to, but after a while I didn't find it that hard. I kind of liked following Morvern Callar around on her decadent life, but I found some plot points unconvincing. I would maybe expect some explanation on why He committed suicide and some more detailing of Morvern's feelings and reasoning of her actions. I'd like to see a less vague ending of the book too.

All that said, leaving the whole thread of Him aside, I didn't find the characters of Morvern and all the others that much unlikely. I've met many of the type in real life. I didn't connect with any of the characters, but didn't hate them either.

I'm glad I read this, but it didn't touch me much
