The Iron Trial | Cassandra Clare, Holly Black

I wasn't really aware of this series, but I've enjoyed Cassandra Clare previously and I know Holly Black is a similar author so I figured I'd give it a shot. It's definitely intriguing, and I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes. #33-2023

Book #33
3.5/5
Decent book - offers a different perspective on relationships, in the context of African-American characters in the US. My complaint would be the pacing of the storyline. There were a lot of places that felt very slow, and it didn't have a very good flow.

This didn‘t keep my attention and reminded me a bit of Olive Kitteridge. It was quite depressing and the writing was boring, I mean the writing is decent but the subject was drab and boring. Eleanor is the victim of extensive child abuse that has left her as a strange, naive adult. But, here‘s the thing, this book is painted in a different light but it‘s about a woman who had a very f*cked up childhood. Book #33 in 2033 pic of my reading buddy.

#PersephoneClub2023 (February) When at the beginning of this novel, I saw Mrs. Knapp behavior, I couldn‘t stand her, a controller OCD mother-woman. But then, behind her behavior I saw a frustrated, depressed woman repressed for not fulfilled her goals in life, but “obliged” to follow “society stereotypes mother-woman roles”. What a change in the dynamic of this family after Lester accident. The roles in each member will change, for good⬇️

Gissy I think the author was amazing in explaining through the characters self talking/reflexions, about how emotionally “trapped” an individual could be by following stereotyped roles. It could be devastated. We still don‘t see an open communication here, it would be “against” what is established by society to accept these new roles, so Lester condition has a “purpose” it will be “an excuse” to continue with these new roles. ⬇️ 10mo
Gissy Based on what I read, the author didn‘t consider herself as a “feminist” but she gave a voice to this woman to express herself. I really liked this novel taking I‘m analyzing it from that time perspective was amazing. I think we still see some bias in these type of roles in our time. 4.5⭐️ @LeahBergen Love this cover😍

TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 10mo
LeahBergen Great review! I kept thinking about the time perspective, too, as I read it and thought how shocking that marital relationship would be for that era. 10mo
Gissy @LeahBergen That‘s true. I read that the author‘s husband helped her so she could have time to write.

I follow Britta Bohler, a YouTuber, who said that she reads these novels to have a picture of the thinking process of the era, what these women like to write, read, a stamp of their lives even when not necessarily she agree with some roles. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to discover these amazing books📚🥰

Finished it! I gave it 3.5 stars. Yes, it was different from other cozy mysteries, but not really my cup of tea. Kind of depressing actually. Lovely purple cover though. #33 #BookSpin 2 #BFC23 #MarchMadness #20in4 #ReadySetRead #Foodie2023
