I sort of got the gist of things in the first few chapters, but then the protagonist started talking to people or they were talking to her or she was listening in on a conversation. I really had no idea who was supposed to be talking and what the heck was going on.
Apparently, it took the author nine years to get this book published, and I understand why. It's kind of a hard sell! Some people like it, apparently, because it's won or been longlisted for a few awards. If you're willing to take the time and have the patience for this book, by all means, give it a whirl. But there are too many books on my to-read list to waste time on this.
A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing is published by Coffee House Press and is available to purchase now. I received a free advance review copy at Book Expo America with no obligation to review.
