The inside of this book is gorgeous.
My haul from one day at Fan Expo Toronto.
This book got me out of my current book slump. It was so good I finished it in two days! The book is about a severely agoraphobic woman who witnessed a crime next door. The crime actually doesn't happen till almost halfway through the book but the main characters struggles with agoraphobia is so interesting you don't notice. The main characters drinking problem made the book have a "Girl on the Train" feel. I highly recommend this book!
The story started off a little slow, although I am right in the middle of moving so I have been very distracted. I got into this love story and connected with all of the characters to a point were I just could not decide how I wanted the story to end because I liked everyone too much.
So this book is definitely different than "The Girl on the Train." Expect a slower pace, there are also so many viewpoints that the story kind of jumps around a lot. It was hard to keep track of all the narrorators at first. Once I was into the story I was into it. It had supernatural elements (which I love), it featured flawed women that work against typical female sterotypes. Give me a "nasty woman" story and I am happy.
I love America #10's cover 😍
The book is fascinating. The author clearly researched the character for years. He has a great writing style, the book is full of facts but it reads like he is conversing with you and not talking at you. I would have liked to see the author look more at modern feminism and the comic/geek community so that he could see that there was a big push to have more Wonder Woman in comics, tv, and movies.
This! I read the Wonder Woman series that touched on her killing Maxwell Lord and I thought this exactly! For people who had been her teammates in the Justice League for so many years, Batman and Superman have the audacity to get upset at her for killing a man who was going to use Superman to kill millions. They know she only kills when necessary, they wouldn't make the decision so she did and then they get in a tantrum because of it.
This book captivated me from the beginning to the end. I had thought I figured out the mystery until a little after the middle of the book and then the mystery changed. People who like Gone Girl, Stranger in the House, or Girl on the Train will love this book.
I loved everything about this book. I think it is great for all ages, women's history is often so under represented. The stories and women in this book are inspirational, I hope they come out with more.
