The Plot | Jean Hanff Korelitz

Mehso-so

It was fine. I saw it coming and I NEVER figure out plots before the end. There was a lot of hype for this one and I think it's bc "serious" writers like books about writers. Instead of a pic of the book (it was an e-book from the library) here is a pic of the wounded kitten we found. She is a million times better!

julesG That's a cute melon slice. Much better than the usual cone of shame. 7d
Skeebies05 @julesG she has been through so much but the traditional cone of shame was what broke her. She went on a hunger strike 😂 7d

As cute as to be expected. A nice Rom- com that was a perfect palate cleanser.

Thing I hate so much in women's fiction: Best friends who talk shit about each other or act annoyed with their alleged best friend.

I love Jamie Fox, love love him, ever since his In living color days. This book is funny but I want more of his own life for his next book.

I loved this one. It was bizarre and funny. I laughed at the darkest things in this book.

This is me "working from home". I am watching my email. We found a wounded kitten the other day and she had surgery yesterday so I'm home with her.

Louise How dear of you to help this kitten. May she heal well and gain strength every day. Happy Holidays! 4w

I loved this. I plowed through it. I do feel like the description is a bit misleading, that's all I'll say 😀

It started out so good but 3/4 in Anna really started to annoy me. So naive for a grown woman. And there were characters who just show up for no compelling reason (looking at you Ken).

This one has a pretty low rating on here. But I really liked it! Besides a bizarre Serena Williams sidetrack moment, I loved it.

This was my first book by this author. It was ok. It didn't have enough suspense for me. I do want to try more of her books.

I don't know what I keep reading books like this: slow, tedious, attempts to be vague and mysterious, always alluding to secrets, and then the last 1/4 is good. 🙄 but A+ for that setting!

I've had this book on my Nook since the day it came out last year. Just finished it today. I liked it quite a bit. Sort of retro redeemed himself after Survive the night. One thing that does slightly bug me is women characters. They are just a little off sometimes. Not a complete fool writing women but could use just some slight corrections

I just didn't like this one. I was annoyed and frustrated through the entire book. By far my least favorite of his. It all felt so tedious and moved slow.

I read this book fast. It's been a long time since I've been able to do that! I liked the characters so much that I didn't mind that the "twists" were a little predictable.

Hi All! I‘m back. Mental health has been a struggle these past few months so I haven‘t read very much. I find the CIA so interesting. This book was dense. Not in pages but in content. So many people and places to keep track. I really enjoyed this book but had to take a break from the very heavy material.

I liked it. It was short and easy to read. The entire thing takes place in one day so not a ton of thrilling build up. But it was cool. I put so- so bc I wouldn‘t recommend it to anyone 🤷🏽‍♀️
