Sad that Hay festival is over for another year. As always I've been to some brilliant talks, but have been uncharacteristically reserved in my book buying.

Burns' descriptions of male control had a huge emotional impact on me and resonated deeply. I've never heard or read such an accurate description of the subtle ways women can be made to feel vulnerable by predatory men. It's a difficult read stylistically and takes some perseverance to begin with but is well worth the effort #AnnaBurns #Milkman #patriarchy #ireland #troubles #violence #control

BiblioLitten Great review. Also, I should persevere and not give up reading it. 🙂 3mo

I feel as though this book is a “must-read” simply for its thought-provoking nature. The style of writing itself is extremely difficult to read (for the first time in my life I switched to an audio book which was far more enjoyable!), however whenever I put it down again I had something new to mull over and reflect on. Gorgeous cover 😍 and genius writing, but not an easy read by any means.

So I‘m currently forcing my way through this book for a book club I‘m hoping to join and I really am finding it difficult to enjoy it. Has anyone else struggled with this one or is it just me? 🤷🏼‍♀️

KathrynElise @Branwen For the first time in my life I actually downloaded an audiobook and just listened to that. Strangely enough I actually enjoyed it far more having the lovely Irish lady reading it to me haha 😆 5mo
