Subdivision: A Novel | J. Robert Lennon

I don‘t completely understand this book, yet I love it. I was all in for the strange world the narrator inhabited, and in trying to follow what it all meant. I need and want to read it again. Another book I would never have gone anywhere near if not for my beloved #tournamentofbooks! #tob22

Ruthiella This author and book were also new to me and I really want to try some of his other titles now! 😃 3mo
BarbaraBB There will be so much to discuss about this book. I loved it! 3mo
Mindyrecycles @Ruthiella Yes, same! 3mo

Since this book ended up on all of my regular Best of 2021 lists, and it‘s on #ToB2022, and I found it on sale, and I love Ishiguro…clearly this was the choice for first new book of 2022. I am LOVING it. Why did I wait so long to read it? #TournamentofBooks

Many people seem to either love or hate this #TournamentOfBooks #ToB22 selection. I definitely belong in the first camp. I listened to the audiobook and found Adjoa Andoh's narration mesmerizing.

Ruthiella I‘m in the latter camp! 😂 But I think I understand the appeal to other readers. 5mo
kwmg40 @Ruthiella I too can understand the complaints about the book. I can't wait to see the ToB commentary on this novel! 5mo

Mehso-so

Read for #tob22 #tournamentofbooks and I‘m sad to say it wasn‘t a great one for me. Historical fiction isn‘t my genre, so it‘s partially on me but I just felt like I was trudging toward the end. I will say, the narration was great in the audiobook and the character development was a high point.

Ruthiella I‘m reading this now. So far, so good -1/3 of the way through- but it‘s not settling my pants on fire or anything. 5mo
Chelsea.Poole @Ruthiella I think it was fine, but I expected more. Hopefully it works for you! 5mo
BarbaraBB I felt the same about this one. 5mo

A clever and thought-provoking story from the #TournamentOfBooks shortlist. It starts with a scientist discovering that her husband has been having an affair with her clone, and it just gets weirder and scarier from there. #ToB22

kwmg40 @TheSpineView @Andrew65 Thanks for stopping by!

@BarbaraBB I'm looking forward to seeing what you think of this one.

@LitStephanie The plot had a lot of surprises!

@TheAromaofBooks It was! Much darker than I'd expected.

The weekend was busier than expected, so I've managed only 9.5 hours for the #20in4 readathon so far. @Andrew65

However, I did finish this new book from one of my favourite authors and it did not disappoint! I'm looking forward to seeing how it does in the #TournamentOfBooks next year. #tob22

Andrew65 That‘s a great total. Well done 👏👏👏 6mo
