Three Women | Lisa Taddeo
post image
Pickpick

Maggie‘s story, of the three, was the most compelling for me. I‘m glad that Taddeo was able to keep the right names in this narrative because I liked being able to look up the case and read about it after finishing the book. Maggie‘s story was resounding and so important for Taddeo to put in the open like this. Slone and Lina‘s stories were important, but no one deserves justice like Maggie does. #botm

This novel is arresting and heartbreaking. It is not overly emotional, but finds a way to be just the right amount. I cannot praise this novel more. This should be required reading. I have never read a more compelling, intense, and accurate view of eating disorders and the support systems behind recovery.

Book #2 down at just under 5 hours!

This is one of the best novels I have read in a long time. I find it difficult for literary fiction novel to be nearly perfect but this novel is. I can barely bring my thoughts together to write a review. The prose is masterful and timely, covering themes of corruption, wealth, family, and interpersonal relationships including LGBT ones. Please read this one. It is so intensely beautiful.

collegecatlady @gradcat It‘s just this one and another one that came out super recently that tells Hopper‘s backstory. They‘re definitely not better than the show.

The Bat | Jo Nesbo
post image
Pickpick

I enjoyed this book and its pacing immensely until the ending. I was engaged in the search for the murderer and kept turning the pages. However, I have a huge problem with the characters who are not white, straight males being the only characters demonized. I will elaborate on this in a spoiler comment for those who have read the novel. Can anyone tell me if the other novels do this same thing? If so, I am not interested in continuing the series.

collegecatlady With the reveal of the death of a possibly transgender character plus two characters of color, I can‘t say that I felt comfortable with these reveals. The killer‘s monologue about his revenge against white women was not uncomfortable for its concept, but rather because a white man wrote this of a character of color. Is this what Nesbo sees Aboriginal men as? It was just straight up uncomfortable and the only main characters to be murdered or the 2mo
collegecatlady “bad guy” were people on the outskirts of white straight male. How did you guys feel about this? Am I overreacting or was this uncomfortable for others too? (edited) 2mo
collegecatlady I want to continue the series as I felt the pacing and writing was engaging, but I need to know that the rest of the books don‘t have that racist undertone. 2mo

collegecatlady @Reggie I was curious as to your opinions on the book since you commented on my other post. You can see how I felt about the ending. What did you think? And have you read more of the series? 2mo
Mandoul Thanks for the review! This one is on my list, so its good to know what you thought, including how characters were portrayed. 2mo
Reggie The racist thing switches over to what feels like heavy sexism. There is a later book where he has a woman that commits suicide in a way that makes it look like any of the three men she loved could have done it just to get back at them. Like really? I will say this. The 3rd in the series is the best. And it was voted the best mystery of all time in his country. I say read that one and decide how you feel. I‘ve only read up to the Snowman. 2mo
collegecatlady @Reggie Thanks for the information! I will definitely take your advice. I enjoyed the hunt for the killer, but the racism in the end was just terrible. I will try out the 2nd and 3rd for sure then. I‘m one of those people who has to read them in order! 2mo
Reggie Also yes to the racism in here. He has a POC be the bad guy which is so cliche and then to go over the top and have him be eaten by a great “white”shark it was so bad it was funny. In interviews he does say that he‘s embarrassed of the first 2 in this series. They weren‘t even published in English until much later than the rest of the series. 2mo
collegecatlady @Reggie That‘s at least some consolation. It was also blatantly racist to have the POC cop character murdered and wow, turns out he was a heavy heroin addict 🙄 2mo

It is my pleasure to announce that I‘ll be attending New England College for my MFA in the fall. I received an offer I couldn‘t exactly turn down involving an online teaching position and scholarship. The program is low residency so I‘ll only be flying up to New Hampshire twice a year. I am also currently in the process of moving, hopefully to TN! Plans haven‘t yet been completely finalized but things are heading in the right direction! 👇🏻cont

collegecatlady I will also be informing anyone in my postal book clubs of my address change as it happens next month! 3mo
