Good, but not quite good enough,
This review is from: The Half Life of Stars (Paperback)Mmmm, not really sure about this book. Bought and read the book on the back of (i) Louise Wener's power as a songwriter in Sleeper and (ii) reviews on the Amazon site. Ended up feeling half fullfilled. Is it a 'girly book'? I don't think so, but it never sucked me in, it was never unputdownable.
It's well written, and has passages of intrigue and sort of suspense, but it all ends up with a bit of an easy ending that leaves a sense of unfullfillment.
Very readable but not as good as her lyrics from the mid 90's.
