Manuscript help, book reviews and author interviews
Being short-listed for the prestigious Man Booker Prize in itself is reason enough for picking up this novel.
Rosemary Cooke, narrates her story in a very “talkative style”. As a child she could not stop talking, but when she grew up, her life was engulfed with silence.
The narrative is witty, dark and wise. The plot is a complex one, but totally sucks the reader in. Karen Joy Fowler brings to life a unique experiment from history that not many of us know about. Her research is flawless and the writing style simply beautiful. The more you read, the more you want to know how it ends and skipping even a bit is not an option, because it will take away the thrill when the plot unfolds.
There are no spoilers in this review. Just get the book and read!!
