Property Of
Property Of: A Novel | Alice Hoffman
7 posts | 5 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
The mesmerizing debut of a major American writer On the Night of the Wolf, the Orphans drive south on the Avenue, hunting their rival gang, the Pack. In the lead is McKay, their brooding, courageous President. Left waiting at the clubhouse is the Property of the Orphans, tough girls in mascara and leather who have declared their allegiance to the crew. Tonight, a new girl has joined their ranks. She waits only for McKay. Drag races, dope, knife fights in the street. To the seventeen-year-old heroine of Alice Hoffmans stunning first novel, the gritty world of the Avenue is beautiful and enthralling. But her love for McKay is an addictionone that is never satisfied and is impossible to kick. Deeper and deeper she falls, until the winters day when she decides to break the spell once and for all. A strikingly original story about the razor-thin line between love and loss, Property Of showcases the vivid imagery, lyricism, and emotional complexity that are the hallmarks of Alice Hoffmans extraordinary career.

Mehso-so

Not what I expected from Alice Hoffman and not an enjoyable read due to the subject matter. In this story the central character becomes embroiled in a world of gang warfare, drugs, prostitution, rape and murder, necessary as she falls for the leader of New York gang, The Orphans. Once I finished the book I was left feeling flat, sad and wondering if that world and that type of lifestyle is worth it. ⭐️⭐️

TrishB Never even heard of this one! 9mo
Ms_T @TrishB Me neither! I got it plus three others as a free download. 9mo

Trying to decide on my next read and I‘ve come across these which I got ages ago as a free download bundle. I‘ve only read The Dove Keepers by this author and I loved it so I‘m hopeful these will be as good. Now, which one shall I start first? 🤔

Just couldn‘t get into this one. I may come back to it eventually but it‘s been long enough since I opened this on my Kindle that I‘m calling it a bail for now. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I just finished The Book of Joan, and I have a lot of....thoughts about it. I‘d planned to start one of the new books I have on my #Kindle and come back to Property Of another time but I‘m still too much in Joan‘s world to make a decision, so #TeamAlice it is! #ihaveatleastfortyunreadbooksonmykindle #bibliophileproblems

I forgot I had this collection in my library. One of these I have in print and have read a few weeks ago. I‘ll probably start Property Of after the holidays, but we‘ll see.

Still though, I‘m crying for The Rules of Magic, prequel to my all time favorite, Practical Magic! I don‘t think it‘s available in my country yet, and even if it is, I‘m currently in a book ban. Heehee. *Someone gift it to me! 🙏🏼*
