The Bass Rock
Oct 07, 2020
This book, comprised of 3 separate storylines (2 historic and 1 current), had great potential but was ultimately disappointing for me. The earliest story was sketched out without enough detail to really connect to the characters or understand what was happening. The other historical story was better but again, details were sketchy and the trail of bread crumbs meandered too much. The current storyline was filled with unlikable characters with self destructive behavior that was very frustrating to witness. And then there were these vignettes of acts of violence against women. I thought they were flashbacks that involved the main characters and that it would all come together in the end but I've ultimately concluded they had little to do with the plot and were just meant to illustrate the proliferation of violence women experience. There are nuggets of greatness here (hence the 3 star rating) but it's just too uneven for me to recommend.
