The Lioness: A Novel | Chris Bohjalian
post image
Pickpick

I‘d never read Chris Bohjalian‘s work, but because a) he‘s the #AuthorAMonth, b) he‘s lovely on Litsy, and c) I enjoyed Season 1 of The Flight Attendant series (haven‘t yet started Season 2), it was time to try one of his books. I liked it! Great characters, plentiful action (sometimes distressingly so! 😳), interesting historical contexts and social commentary, and quality writing. (A good escapist read, if you need one in this moment...😔)

There wasn‘t anything I didn‘t like about this mystery/thriller by @ChrisBohjalian . Believable plot, realistic dialogue, well-developed characters and excellent scenic descriptions brought to life by Rebecca Lowman‘s narration.

I loved this a lot. The funny thing about this author is that all of his books are vastly different and it's hard to play favorites.

A woman, known for sleepwalking, disappears. That's the setup. The mystery evolves from there.

Oh this is the things my nightmares would be made of if I were to experience nightmares: 1. visiting a foreign country with a traveling companion and said companion mysteriously dies, 2. Rats. … I see on on GR this was published on 17Mar20. Holy #**, I‘m glad I didn‘t preorder this because it would have furthered the fears of my March 2020 pandemic-anxious self!

This was a really moving read - light on actual text but not on depth or meaning. The art is memorable and I absolutely loved the use of color. I appreciated how the acknowledgments and notes at the end described the close bond between the two Jason creators (and jumped online after to learn a bit more about that). Too bad I forgot that Reynolds is July‘s #AuthorAMonth - oh well, guess I‘ll have to read more of him then - yay!

Hello #authoramonth readers!

June has been flying by for me, how about you? I‘m seeing lots of reviews of @ChrisBohjalian ‘s books, and I‘m happy to see so many enjoying them.

Heads up that July will bring us Jason Reynolds, in case you need to place library holds or go shopping 🙂📚.

Happy Reading!

I think I‘m a little bit in love with Alfred and his borrowed horse Mesa. There was a lot in here to take in, including especially the epigraphs before each chapter. But a huge theme for me was how many lives can be affected/damaged/upended by one bad choice. #authoramonth @Soubhiville
