did not like it
bookshelves: 2018

I started Nightingale by Kirstin Hannah
when I could not fall asleep last night.
I tried to notice the 'best word' adjectives used...nothing imaginative.
I tried to noticed the use of color...everything is
blue (ribbons, starbursts, shutters, hands, pottery, housedress) or
white (blossoms, towels, gloves, sheets, clouds, searchlights.
Sentimentality oozes out of this book.
It is an emotion we all feel.
But the feeling seem to be imposed on the story
rather than rising out of the story/conflict.
I'm done. The books is sticky like sugar spin!
