Unreliable narrators and unlikable characters are everywhere lately, and both figure prominently in The Dinner. The entire novel takes place over the course (pun intended) of a single dinner in a posh Amsterdam restaurant. But make no mistake, although the meal is described in some detail, this is no foodie novel.
As two families dine, they struggle to make the toughest decision of their lives. It's dark, it's disturbing, and you'll turn pages quickly in order to ingest this tortuous meal. I finished the book in just a few days, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
