Review: This Strange Eventful History

This Strange Eventful History
This Strange Eventful History by Claire Messud
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

It is very rare for me not to finish a book. In fact in the last three years, I’ve probably DNF’ed 2 books. And I’ve loved Messud’s other novels. But this one was just not what I expected and even at the 40% mark I was still struggling to focus. At that point, I decided to call it and not continue with reading the book. I am confident there will be others who love it and her writing, as always, is beautiful but this was just not the right book for me. Since I didn’t finish I will not rate it. Please read other reviews and I will absolutely look forward to and read Messud’s next book.

with gratitude to W. W. Norton & Company and netgalley for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
