it was ok
bookshelves: historical-fiction
Read from July 24 to August 13, 2015

There was a point when I was going to rate this three stars because although it wasn't my jam, I could see the merit and that a lot of other people might enjoy it. But then I realized that this book (which I stopped reading at around the 80% mark) made me want to not read. And I don't mean it made me not want to read this book... it made me not want to read AT ALL. Literary fiction is not usually my thing, but ultra-dense prose with convoluted timelines and thinly-veiled "surprises" are definitely not my thing. At all.
