Black Swan Green by David Mitchell (2006)

The realistic language did me in.  I really, really enjoyed The Bone Clocks; it was one of my favorite books our book club has read so far.  Not so much this one; I made it through a couple of chapters.  But the "dialect" and slang was quite difficult to comprehend, and I just didn't want to read about adolescent boyhood - not very interesting.  I did think the Hugo Lamb character from The Bone Clocks making an appearance was interesting.  But that was all - I gave up.
