A disappointing read. Like many others have said, it has grammatical and syntax errors the whole way through which makes it so difficult to read.
It felt like a completely different author had written it. I’ve read some of Mhairi Mcfarlanes other books and loved them, but this was nothing like them. It felt like an authors first book when they are trying to find their feet, instead of an already well established and successful author. It’s written in third person, and the while I can sympathise with the character, she’s written in a very whiny way.
I keep seeing reviews say that it’s really funny, but I’m a third of the way through and keep wondering when the humour will start. I can usually get through a book like this in a couple of days but the story is dragging, I’ve been picking it back up and putting it back down for over a week. It feels more of an obligation to finish it at this point rather than being enthusiastic about it. The repetitive writing of ‘hahaha’ threw me as well and took me out of the scene, just describe the laughter?!
I don’t like giving books bad reviews because I know the authors work hard on them, but this felt like she had a good idea but was rushed and didn’t know how to execute the plot to get from point A to point B. Each plot point felt like it was only half explored.
Although I live in Manchester, so I did appreciate the familiarity of imagining the surroundings.
However, this was a lovely book to read and kept me guessing throughout so worth a read.
