Rosie and I will never be friends
21 September 2018
I really couldn't like this book. And that's probably ok because I'm sure it wasn't written for me. The language was dreadful, the subject matter was dreadful, it was impossible to tell if the writing was really any good because it was full to the brim with casual crudity and our politics are really really different. I have a lot of empathy for Rosie and her horrendously tough life which spawned bad choices and tough challenges, so I hope we could find common ground. But maybe not.
