MarchMarch by Geraldine Brooks

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


I am not an audience for this book, so take the review with a grain of salt.

I really disliked both POV characters of this book. It is clear that we are supposed to dislike them, but we are also supposed to sympathize with them, and I could not manage that with Mr. March. I still want to smother him with a pillow.

Meanwhile the POV change was very unexpectedly jarring. I've read an explanation as to why the author chose to do it that way, but it did not change my feelings about it.

There is a lot about slavery in this book. This does not reflect on the quality of the book, but it is a topic that I have a lot of difficulty reading about, and it contributed to the general feeling of gloom in this novel.

So basically so far Trump pissed off a) more than half of this country who did not vote for him, b) the press, c) the FBI. At this point, I am waiting for further developments with bated breath.

"The rubber bands are heading in the right direction"

Is it me, or does it sound ominous?
