As you may recall, for the month of April, our Virtual Book Club chose to read Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger and here’s my review! Leave your review or a link to your review in the comments and we’ll see what you thought of it, too!
What drew me to pick up this book in the first place? Probably ignorance? I recognized the author as the author of The Time Traveler’s Wife and while I never actually read that book… or even saw the movie… I saw previews of the film and so, obviously, I knew all about what this book would be about. Right? Hopefully you’re seeing how very wrong this theory was. It’s like playing a game of telephone and then paying $15 (yeah, I paid full price for this book!) and committing several hours of your life based on the outcome.
I picked it up at a time when I was looking for something easy to quickly draw me in. Maybe a little romantic? I thought I’d found it! And then I suggested it for the book club and we were all in agreement and lo and behold! We were all reading it and we had to finish it. Hahaha! Does that give away how I felt about this book?
I really wanted my first book review to be “OMGILOVEDTHIS! EVERYONE READ IT! EMOJISEMOJISEMOJIS!” But this one is a little more complicated. Please keep reading.
