#NextUp #nonfiction
I‘m starting this for this months book club. I was intimidated by the size (#doorstopper) but I‘m now a couple of chapters in and i am enjoying this.

Mehso-so

This novel is beautifully written but surprisingly brutal. Everyone goes around ignoring each other‘s feelings in a way that is almost cruel and that makes for a very frustrating 500+ pages.

The plot goes nowhere and ends with a thud on a non sequitur. And the only two characters to have anything approaching a real arc (out of myriads) are two of the “bad guys.”

Wish my original pick for my #readharder2020 #doorstopper had worked out. 🤷🏻‍♀️

khooliha I am excited to hear if something/someone died every chapter. 2y

Currently reading....and really enjoying the story so far.
Who else has read The Goldfinch? Is the movie good? I want to finish the book before I watch the movie!

A friend of mine borrowed me that book. She loves the story and she pique my curiosity. Can I accomplish the 1020 pages???? #doorstopper #fantasy #filmadaptation #chunkster

Freespirit Wow that's huge! 4y
Buechersuechtling Uh. Some months ago, I made an effort with this, too because I liked the idea of the plot. But the writing style wasn‘t for me – I was annoyed pretty fast, so I quickly put the book aside. 🤐 But I‘m pretty excited to hear from someone who _really_ reads it. So please post your thoughts and impressions often. 😘 4y
Moony @Freespirit yeeees it the hugest book I ever read, 4y
Moony @Buechersuechtling yes, of course. But perhaps I don't like it, too. ;) 4y
Buechersuechtling @Moony Don‘t judge a book by the opinions others give you unsolicitedly. 😉 4y

I figured, now that I have extra time for reading (when breastfeeding, pumping or with a sleeping baby on me) I should tackle some door-stoppers! #1000pages+ #doorstopper #scifi #sf #mbtr

While I'm thoroughly enjoying this, it's also beginning to feel a bit like the book that never ends. #doorstopper
