The Crane Wife | Patrick Ness
Mehso-so

Wish there was a 'Hmmmm??' rating as So-so seems kind of unfair. This book had some truly beautiful passages and sentences and Patrick Ness's usual keen descriptions of those hard to articulate feelings and ideas....this had a deep seated dream like quality to the writing. Somehow it just didn't work as a novel though.... Perhaps a lack of characterisation??? I closed the book feeling moved but thinking 'what did I just read?' #read2017

TrishB That‘s like a lot of his for me! 2y

Struggling to rate this one.... So So seems very stingy but can't quite call it a Pick either #somewhereinbetween #kindleprime #read2017

TheLudicReader Love the cover. I definitely have a thing for creepy houses. 2y

Only reached the halfway point during the recent buddy read but loved this original and funny book. Can't wait to read the rest of the series #read2017

Cathythoughts I loved it too. ❤️👍❤️ 2y
TrishB Only just noticed you had finished 💙 I enjoyed some - but got a bit bored of the father/mother Thames stuff. I will probably read the next though. 2y
Cathythoughts I also got a bit bored with mother/ father Thames parts , @TrishB but I did really enjoy it overall ! And I loved the buddy read aspect to it. I don‘t think I will go any further with the series though. 2y
Balibee146 @TrishB @Cathythoughts I know what you mean..... I think those sequences would work better on gilmour so wonder if writer had his sights on appealing for a TV adaptation. Overall I really enjoyed the narrative voice though 2y
Balibee146 *better on film, lol 😘😘 2y
