Inexcusable: A Novel by Chris Lynch

Keir Sarafian,the main character is:
A. self centered and self absorbed.
B. thinks being a man means not having a hangover when getting drunk the night before.
C. in denial about his involvement when things go wrong or someone gets hurt.
D. all of the above.
The correct answer is D. Keir repeatedly oversteps boundaries throughout Inexcusable by blaming the result of his actions on someone else. It is not until the end of the novel that he realizes the reality of a particular situation that he has caused. I still have unanswered questions about him and it bothers me that his sisters were not more cranky with him. This is a good book, but not the book to read if you want to feel good. YP FIC LYNCH
