Stead is a fine writer. But this is the book she was cutting her teeth on. The narrative is often unclear and always uneven. The message feels forced and heavy handed. The characters are unrelatable and one-dimensional. Stead, however, is graceful and fluid. Her writing is simple yet entoxicating. The problem her is her storytelling, not her writing.
