Books for Breakfast - Book Reviews With a Twist:
A blog about books. And cocktails. Nothing is more literary than alcoholism.
This is on my shelf waiting for my attention. Maybe I'll tackle it next and see what I think.
Predictable? No. It's sort of slow, but I don't think it's predictable. I can't tell you that there are lots of plot twists and surprises, but it may not end where you think it will. I enjoyed the book, but wish it hadn't been so long.
I'm only fifteen pages in and I already hate the protagonist. That won't stop me from reading, because I frequently enjoy stories about people I hate, but I have to wonder what the author's plan is here. I'm sure she has one.
That was my reaction, so I'll let you go through the trenches first.
I forgot that I didn't tell you I finished this one. Here's my analysis:It's pretty well written and well paced. The characters are interestingish, and the cultural commentary is different from other things I've read.That said: the book won't change your life. Probably won't even affect how you feel about your day.On a scale of one to ten I give it a "meh."
