I’ve had this book on loan from the library for 2 weeks now, and at page 110 I’m throwing in the towel.

I don’t know how this can be the same author that wrote Bird Box, a huge 5 star read for me. The writing style is completely different-almost sophomoric with its oversharing and hints at the obvious, most of it told through characters inner thoughts. This could and should have been edited down to a novella.

I was so looking forward this read, which makes the DNF even more painful.

So disappointed! Usually I stick with a book to find out how it all comes together, but with this one I found I just didn’t care. 🙁
