House of Meetings - Martin Amis

I have no doubt that Martin Amis is an exceptional writer; I can surely see skill when I see it, the man writes beautifully and hence the two stars. This book just didn't do it for me. Not because of the style it was written in, clearly, skill is there, but it was more the story itself that bothered me: it was just too cliché for me (the classic love triangle between one woman and two brothers), nothing new under the sun.
