The Misogynist by Piers Paul Read
Bought this sometime in the early summer, as part of a 3 for 2 offer. Read a bit, got distracted, read some more in the late summer and ground to a halt about halfway through the book. It's not bad, but it's a rather depressing view of men and relationships, which I think was part of why I kept stopping. Finally finished it a couple of days ago, and I'm not sure I'd re-read it - one of the main reasons I actually finished it was because it's part of the shelf-and-a-half of unfinished and unread books that I'm determined to try and get through (or at least reduce) before I buy any more books.
The main character is a retired chap called Jomier, whose wife left him some years ago. He's bitter about this, and definitely bitter towards her, but not so much a misogynist, perhaps, as just a misanthrope in general. The book tells of him starting a relationship with another divorcee, a similarly aged woman called Judith, and how this relationship plays out, together with what's happening with his children and grandchildren.
Possibly I've just read far too much chick-lit, but I definitely found the view of relationships in this book very grim - not necessarily wrong, but not cheerful.
