Book Review: Thirty-Two Going on... Spinster
I kid you not, conversations took pages... PAGES!... simply because the narrator couldn't stop thinking. I. Really. Don't. Care. Just have a conversation. I don't need to know what type of danish you're dreaming of in between every line of dialogue. No joke. A page of thought. Then a line of the conversation. Then another page of thought. Then another line of conversation. I began just jumping from dialogue line to dialogue line, skipping everything in between, in order to keep myself from gouging my eyes out from having to read such dribble.
Oddly enough, the story got better once I stopped reading every word of it. The actual PLOT was interesting. The rest could've been edited out. How this train-of-thought nightmare got past the editors is beyond me.
I give this 1 out of 5 stars... which really is a generous rating.
