2.0 out of 5 stars Book fell apart! Ending disappointing - spoiler!!
By Agamoo on 28 July 2022
The idea, the plot, the build up were great (if not a little long winded) but the ending was so disappointing. For a story with such a strong, intelligent feminist protagonist all the way through the ending just felt so, for want of anything better to say… “meh”.
The narrator pretty much disappears for the last 50 pages, with no final words from her it left me thinking “is that it?”

Being totally honest, I wouldn’t recommend this novel.

This book will only be being returned due to the fact that before I’d even got to page 10, 8 pages fell out. They continued to fall out, the spine split and the cover fell off. It was like there wasn’t enough glue applied. The same thing happened to another book off the same order.
