A review by tiffani_reads
The Lesser Blessed by Richard Van Camp


If I didn't have to read this for class, I would have put it down after the first few pages. Thankfully it is a short book because I was bored out of my mind reading it. I know it deals with important issues in the First Nations community but I feel like the way this novel was pitched to me did not live up to the hype. I kept waiting to find out what this accident was and what actually happened but you never find out beyond some sketchy details that may or may not be true because the "flashbacks" happen during blackouts. The entire plot of this book is basically Larry trying to have sex with Juliet and when he succeeds the book ends.... ummmm.... ok. Overall, I was not impressed and will most likely never read this book again or recommend it to anyone.
