lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

The People in the Trees - Hanya Yanagihara Finally got interesting, but it still feels like I'm wading through mud to get it finished......

Finished this book, but I feel like there is a lot to process. Some things that drove me crazy about it were the footnotes (what is up with novels that have footnotes; I find it very distracting) and the long hard march to the end. The first hundred pages were so horrible that I almost didn't read the rest of the book.
