I don't know how I feel about The Cresswell Plot. I assumed that I would know if I liked this book or not by time I finished reading it but I still don't know.

The Cresswell Plot is about Castella Cresswell, her five siblings and her very very mentally ill parents. Her father believes he receives messages from God that include such craziness as the belief that once they die they will all marry each other in heaven...Oh and apparently they're the only ones going to heaven. This family gave me Duggar vibes and severely creeped me out.

I felt as I was reading it like nothing was happening but I also couldn't stop reading it. I'm very confused.

Can a book be boring and compulsively readable at the same time?

I decided to give The Cresswell Plot 3 stars because 4 stars was too many but 2 stars seemed too harsh. I don't rule out waking up tomorrow and completely changing the rating and review. It could happen.

No rec because I'm baffled.

classic reverie Great review, Erin and interesting how you were drawn to it but yet bored. I suppose the writer bewitched you!

Thanks! Yeah, I'd be interested in reading future books by the author to see if it was the story or her writing that so befuddled me.
