Allmänna fakta



Much more understated than My Year Of Rest And Relaxation, but some similar themes of people someone detached from reality attempting to impose control. Also, obviously, a strange mystery story. Really enjoyed it — entrancing. But probably not everyone's cup of tea.

At 260 pages, this is a quick read. The problem is that I kept waiting for something, anything to happen. I'm not knocking the writing or the author's ability to craft interesting prose. Quite the contrary. Many times I was totally lost in what I was reading. The true sign of great writing. But it literally takes 222 pages of learning of Eileen's back story before something happens. The title character is a selfless, pathetic figure. I had no compassion for her throughout most of the book. Her drunk, verbally abusive dad contributes to her lack of self esteem for most of her 24 years (the book is told from Eileen s POV at the age of 75). The ending is a letdown and one that I certainly did not expect nor felt was well thought out. I gave it 3 stars solely for the writing. But I was expecting much more from this read.… (mer)

When I Saw The Woman On The Cover I Thought This Book Would Take Place In The Regency Era Therefore I Am Disappointed


not totally sure how i feel about this yet. most of the reviews say something like "it's supposed to be boring" lol ok??? she did a good job then

i like the main character- i know you're not supposed to. relatable depresssion, but honestly the book itself felt pretty shallow for how much everyone loves it. the main character is definitely vapid (but in a way i adore)

i can't take the ending seriously. i knew it was coming too i just couldnt believe she committed to that
