DNF WITH PREJUDICE

— feeling angry
Fates and Furies - Lauren Groff

I almost feel nuts posting this, because this book is being talked about for awards and the author hailed as a voice of a generation  or something or other. 

 

This book is why I am wary of reading insanely hyped books.

 

I read roughly one third of it and liked NOTHING about this book. It's downright disturbing at times in an icky, uncomfortable way.  And the writing? I understood the words, but, silly me,  I'm a fan of prose that makes sense. The prose was jarring and thoughts felt incomplete. The story? I didn't know who to root for or better yet,  even if I am supposed to root for anyone. 

 

No way would I recommend this book. It sparked all kinds of bad feelings. I wish I had never picked it up.
