A Novel by Deborah Levy
2012 / 127 Pages
Meh! This little novel starts out with a very intriguing first chapter – one that draws the reader in. A chapter that makes you hope for a day at home alone on your favorite reading couch with an icy beverage and a bowl of popcorn to munch. Alas, a book with so much potential failed to deliver.
My main question is why just 127 pages? Actually, my copy only had 115. Why couldn’t Ms Levy have expounded a bit on several of the sub plots? Laura and Marshall? Joseph’s childhood, Isabel’s and Joseph’s relationship? Background story on Dr. Sheridan? Meh!
