Books, coffee, and other fangirl necessities
This book took me quite a long time to get through. It was about two little people and trying to figure out if the man killed the woman or if his psycho babbling is legit. That was certainly different, I don’t think I’ve ever read about little people before. I apologize if I’m not using the correct term, I’m not familiar with what is and isn’t acceptable. Anyways, it was a lot of back and forth he said she said, and not all that interesting. Mostly confusing too. Oscar, the man, believes aliens are coming to get him and that he’s being monitored, all that stuff. That was weird. I also don’t like who Lucy gets together with. That was a plot twist I didn’t approve of because it seemed last minute, or like, “Heck, let’s see what happens.”
A small part of me feels as though Cornwell is sacking her characters’ integrity just for the sake of more readers. Like what Marino did in Book of the Dead. THAT was unforgivable. Maybe all of the awards Cornwell has received have put added pressure on her to crank out more books faster and the quality is suffering as a result. I don’t know.
