I’m participating in the online book group for this title this month, and let me just say, this book is NOT for me. Goodreads pulls you in with this summary; “A magnetic novel about two families, strangers to each other, who are forced together on a long weekend gone terribly wrong.” Like yeah, I’m in for that. But no, it is much more literary than that. Which though I work for the library, math is my subject, not English (lol). I read several articles about the meaning behind the novel when I finished, which helped me develop some appreciation for it especially during these COVID times. Overall, though, it was overly descriptive to the point it was distracting and left me with so many questions. It is described as a disaster novel, before the disaster, so if that sounds like your thing, go for it! Based on my personal preferences, I won’t be reaching for this book much for reader’s advisory.
