“The few times I’d timidly given her one of my stories to read, she’d found pleasure in pointing out any improbabilities. This would never happen.”
Yeah, that quote says it all for me.
It’s a bit like Nanowrimo if a maniacal Willy Wonka type ran it.
The Plot meets The Finalists meets The Hunting Wives.
This one took me a bit to get into. I am challenged by books with mostly unlikable characters so the beginning of this read was slow going for me. Once the pace picked up it was a little better but it was very unbelievable and that took me out of it.
The story within the story was a meh for me. And I didn’t really care who lived or died by the end.
Just because this one wasn’t for me doesn’t mean it won’t be for you. If you can suspend reality and just enjoy the quirky ego-driven violence of a story then give it a try.
