Dy's Take

Bound by Sally Gunning

I always read more the last half of October–it’s prep for November when I read very little due to NaNoWriMo.

This book had moments of great darkness, sufficient to make me wonder, even now that it’s over, if I like the main character. If what she suffered excused what she did–whether she realized it or not.

It also, especially toward the end, had moments of incredible lyricism.

There was enough action (I like action — check and see how few entries there are in the “Literary Fiction” category) to make me finish this one, eventually, but not enough to stop me from setting aside intermittently when something more interesting came along over the past three weeks.

I never would have picked it up on my own.  Would I recommend it? Probably not, it wasn’t THAT good.

I thank my book club for broadening my horizons. And give thanks that MY chosen book comes up in January, lol.
