Okay - just,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Look at Me (Kindle Edition)
Bought this after finishing this author's Goon Squad had been read and thoroughly enjoyed. If I'd read this first I may have enjoyed it much more, but I was constantly reading it as a comparison. Big mistake.
Unfortunately it was a poor comparison. The characters were all so disagreeable and I had no empathy for them which didn't help. It started well, and the theme was brilliant, a beautiful model disfigured in a road accident and her trying without success to come to terms with suddenly not being the centre of attention. But I constantly waited for something to happen. A big scene seemed on the horizon on many occasions, only to fizzle out before any satisfactory conclusion. In fact, a good description of this book would be unsatisfactory.
If you're going to read anything by this author, choose the Goon Squad. Give this a miss.
