Reading Envy Podcast Episode 164: Character Driven with Carol Ann.
Carol Ann is back to talk books with more reading in her rearview. We each talk about books we've liked lately but also end up talking about cheese at the end.
Just started this and must admit I‘m struggling to get into it. What did you think?
Everything Under by Daisy Johnson is yet another novel based on a myth that I didn't know about until I finished. Arghhhh. But I think it only informs one piece of the story. The non-linear fragmented chapters rotate points of view and narrative voice (2nd person, 3rd person, etc.)⤵️
My expectations were too high.... There wasn't enough mystery to make it intriguing or enough suspense to make it a thriller and not enough creepiness or magic or atmosphere to make it otherworldly but the book had elements of all these things. And I didn't like the way it all wrapped up at the end. And I didn't feel that strongly about any of the characters. Some beautiful writing pulled me through but I disliked the story.
