More Books I'm Not Reading: Child 44

Tom Rob Smith's Child 44 has gotten great reviews but I only made it through the first chapter. Jumps from one point-of-view to the next in an attempt to be cinematic, I guess, but it jarring and confusing and doesn't really build the suspense needed for a scene that has an outcome you see coming from a mile away. I didn't want to invest any more time in it when I've got other, better books to read.

Maybe it's me.
