TH Book Club: November Discussion - November 13th 2017, 02:38 AM

Did anyone read the novel or attempt too?

I attempted to read it but couldn't really get into it. It seemed really slow and I lost interest really early on. When I lose interest that early on, I tend to put the book down, my reasoning behind this is that if I don't have much interest in it than I am going to struggle with it and it will not be enjoyable.

Interested to hear any other thoughts about the novel, if others read it.

Sorry to hear you lost interest. I'm about half way through and have been enjoying it, but am finding the story weird in how it progresses. It's all linked but very loosely, so at the moment, I feel like the middle part of the story has very little to do with the first part. Not only that, but it's quite unrealistic? I don't think I have read Jane Eyre, and maybe if I had, it would make more sense, perhaps

I might try again at a later date. I am not sure though. I am interested to hear what you end up thinking about the novel though!

I lost interest not long after but continued to read anyway. I finished it now but not that impressed by it. Even though the ending was a bit clichťd, I feel like there were a few loose ends, and that the last chapters were rushed, like it crams a lot in? But I do think that had I read Jane Eyre before this, maybe it would make more sense and I could see the similarities.

It is possible that reading Jane Eyre would have helped. I don't know that I will ever read Jane Eyre though and that is, actually, one of the reasons I struggle with reading books that are considered retellings. I understand why a lot of people enjoy them but some authors write them in a way where you have to be familiar with the story they are retelling.

It's definitely disappointing that you took the time to read it and it was just kind of meh!

I hate when authors rush endings too. I notice a lot of authors do that with books that are part of a series (especially the last book of the series) and it can be so frustrating.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Definitely makes me feel a tad bit better about not finishing it. I tend to feel really guilty about putting a book down because I always wonder 'What if it got better?'
