Damn good book! But....
Reviewed in Canada on June 7, 2022
This book was SO good, I fell in love with the characters! And the plot was exceptional. I loved the author's writing style, flowed very nicely. My only complaint? Well, I'm the type of reader who needs to absorb every nuance, every intention and every meaning of every word put on the pages of the books I read, because of this, I do not like or want to know the political leanings of any author that I read, whether I agree with the ideology or not. I feel it cheapens the expertise. It's an indulgence that many authors afford themselves in the words they write but I always find it rather alienating as it pulls me out of the story a bit and it takes a quick minute to recover from the mental jostling to get me back in it. This author did so a few times, and it seemed a little forced, but this book was so good, that I was able to move forward from it rather quickly in each instance, but it still nagged a tiny bit at the back of my skull. Over-all, very satisfying book to read, I could relate to every character in some degree, and I was emotionally invested in their lives throughout the read.
