How very disappointed I was in this book. The lack of punctuation, the "English" language usage, both made this a hard read that was very distracting. I just couldn't get into the flow. After Little Bee, maybe I was expecting too much.
bleak, heartbreaking, emotionally draining, raw and yet compelling.
I loved this book! I had read Little Bee previously, and this book is equally as good.
Well written. Cleave knows how to develop his characters' voices. As a mother, it was a tough read, emotionally. I would recommend with that disclaimer.
I did not like this book at all... I think I was led to believe it was about something other then what it really is about. The woman speaking isnt very interesting and I just couldnt stay in the story and kept thinking... "Why am I reading this??" Sad because maybe if it had been writen different it could have been a GREAT story... that lost of women could have related to. Thumbs down from me.
Original! Quirky but manages not to lose the story. Would love to be able to write like that,
The story was compelling but not as much as his other novel.
Could not put it down. Disturbing but great read.
