  • Diverse cast of characters? N/A


This book had an interesting concept and phenomenal bones but I wanted more from it. The parts I wanted to hear more about felt glossed over and the uninteresting parts seemed to drag for pages and pages. I personally think that was a lot of this Lafarge's intent. Moments of clarity or red flags were brushed off, not to be dwelled on, and constant travel exhausted and confused both Frances and me, the reader. Regardless of intent, I think a lot of really compelling things could have been done if Lafarge had really let Frances reflect on what was happening around her.
