Moments of brilliance and astounding writing that had me hanging off every word. But countered with some dull chapters too. I felt I knew which chapters Mandel enjoyed writing and where she had a sense of flow as she wrote.
The book has a lot of characters and they are intricately woven and built up beautifully. There is a lot of bouncing around timelines. Something I normally find frustrating, but Mandel executes this effectively too.
The book just didn’t work for me. I probably need to reflect on it more. Not every book can be a perfect fit for every reader.
