The Murder Farm By, Andrea Maria Schenkel

A tale of murder told almost wholly after the fact.  The reader learns what happened on this infamous farm, through the neighbors and villagers who live in the same town the murder took place in.  It has more of a humanistic aspect to it focusing more on who the victims were rather than focusing on who killed them.  The tale is slow moving without a lot of suspense.  I liked the way that the story was told, but something felt off about it.  I worry that it may be something that was lost when this book was translated from German to English.  I really didn't care about any of the characters, but the characters weren't really likeable in the first place.  Overall I give book a three star rating.
