Context: Read this in a day in an easy chair.
I thought this was pants actually.
Beloved actually got better towards the end. This one just kept tumbling along. The story isn’t that gripping really and the style just gets in the way to the point of pretension I thought. I simply didn’t understand what she was trying to do with this novel and, when an artist confuses me, I feel cheated, belittled and naive.I’m sure others will disagree although I’d love to hear why you think differently. I hope I can learn something.
