Montauk | Nicola Harrison

Pickpick

Montauk is located on the eastern tip of Long Island, and this book is set in 1938. It is the story of Beatrice Bordeaux, a married 27-year-old Manhattan socialite and her fateful 3 1/2 months summering there that will change her life forever.

There are lots of issues running through this book...social class differences (both economically and ethnically), gender inequality, infidelities, etc. 🔽🔽

robinb At the heart of it is how a grieving young woman, grasping at an advantageous match in an effort to pull herself back into life, ultimately realizes her naivety about the choices she‘s made. She has to decide if she has the courage to reach deep, remember who she is and commit to what she wants in life.

robinb I had mixed feelings about this story. While I rooted for Beatrice to come into her own, she had a few moments of snideness and made a few decisions that weren‘t well thought out, and I often ended up wanting to throttle her. 🤦🏻‍♀️ And unfortunately the ending was fairly predictable as well. 3.5/5⭐️

Thanks to #BookedUpAllNight and @StMartinsPress for the ARC!

Crazeedi Interested in your thoughts on this! 4mo
robinb @Crazeedi So far I‘m enjoying it! It‘s a bit of a chunkster (at about 400 pages) so it may take me awhile as I‘m a slower reader. 4mo
Crazeedi @robinb oh I love books bigger than 400 pages!!! 4mo
robinb @Crazeedi Me too, but being a slower reader they sometimes take me awhile to get through! 🤣👍 4mo
