Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellmann

  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Sometimes I felt like the narrator and I were kindred spirits and I liked the steady progression of the story. However, this book absolutely did not need to be 1000 pages and was around 300 too long.
