Reviews and Notes

Summary/Annotation ->  An acclaimed international bestseller, The Dinner is the provocative, darkly suspenseful tale of a seemingly ordinary meal at a posh Amsterdam restaurant, where two couples must confront a dangerous secret. In a story line that will have all parents wondering how well they really know their children--and how far parents should go to protect their family--master of suspense Herman Koch introduces us to brothers Paul and Serge Lohman and the frightful truths they share. Each with a fifteen-year-old son, the Lohmans haven't always approved of each other's parenting styles. Now their boys have triggered a police investigation that threatens everything their families cherish. As Paul narrates the night in gripping, finely honed scenes, we are served a glimpse of the dark side of genteel society and the startling ease with which ordinary people can do extraordinarily horrific things.
