Ok this was a weird book. It left me feeling lulled into some other reality-- ya super weird. But that is what Vandermeer is good at. I think I I sorta liked it? Not really sure yet.

Umm...ya. This was definitely an interesting read. Mostly it just left me feeling icky, BUT- that being said, the last 20 pages were soooo good. The ending was very well written & satisfying. I then had to go & google everything!

Ok.. I decided to not give a fuck if I finished this or not. To be fair I read more than halfway. I would rate this higher if not for the ridiculous amount of times the author used the buzzword, "metric". I mean really it started to drive me crazy. But in general some good advice sprinkled in amongst the fucks and metrics.

Sydsavvy Ok belly laugh!! 😂😂😂 soooooo needed that!!! 2y

Sadly, I just couldn't finish this. I just could not get into it. I've been trying to catch up on my backlist so I gave this one a go.

Finally finished this Long book. It was pretty good. I know a lot more about Margaret Tudor & her two sisters. Although..... why is she holding a monkey here in this portrait I have no idea?

Ok . Finished this today. Mixed feelings. I know it is fiction, but this novel sheds light onto an Albert Einstein that is an absolute abomination. And this makes me sad. I am left reflecting on how women can freely get an education and pursue their interests now in a way that Mileva never could.

Ok... I wanted to like this more than I actually did. I thought the way the Harley's story unfolded using the bullet wounds as a narrative technique was interesting, but still not enough for me to stay invested emotionally in the story. It was ok .

Pelican71 I've been holding on to this book for a while. I've started and stopped reading it a handful of times. 3y
susanw YES! I'm just over half way, and while I'm reading it's ok, not fantastic just ok, but once I put it down, there is no draw to pick it back up. 3y

I'm going to bail. I just keep drifting off, and can't seem to follow anything. I think I might need to just opt for the film instead.

LisaMakeWords The film is great. I found the book a bit dry...the subject is so interesting though. 3y

Ok. I love Patrick Ness. Maybe this wasn't my favourite one, but it was ok. It was quirky & sweet. A nice coming of age novel that covered some complicated feelings. I wish there was more about the "Indie kids" though. I'd read a book about them Patrick....
