A feminist retelling of the Arthurian legend from the Elaine (Elaine the Mad or The Lady of Shalott) this book is dark, beautiful, surprising, and wonderful.
It’s going to be a short review this week y’all. This book sucked.
In which I take 900 words to tell you that there are other better books out there that don’t have the cultural appropriation baggage.
It’s speculative fiction but the rules of the “speculation” part are never clearly stated or understood by the characters. Very frustrating. I really liked the concept and I really wanted to love this book. And yet.
Biff is an asshat, a self-serving narcissist who exemplifies low-brow adolescent bro behavior. He finds himself endlessly amusing and the “jokes” are a mile a minute with only a few passages that aren’t over the top or played for humor. As schticks go, this one wore very thin very fast.
The sort of book perfect for a rainy day and a cup of tea. But be warned, it might give you complex dreams or feelings of “what if….” especially if you too are in the middle section of your life.
I write… and sometimes people enjoy reading what I have written. My short story collection is available on Amazon. you can get it as a paperback or an e-book. I am also working on another short story collection (sci-fi themed), a novel, and a few different children’s books.
