Among the Branded
I loved the characters: They are real and relatable for all of us who work full-time; manage a family; have lost loved ones; value our quirky families; or make important, deep connections with friends. The tone of the book is also very relatable—it’s light, funny, and conversational despite the somberness of the underlying topic. The plot is complicated and interwoven, in ways that life often is. All of this makes for a real page-turner. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next.
As I was reading, I easily pictured this being a movie, though the final confrontation at the end would need to be embellished with a kidnapping, attempted murder, or some other dramatic effect for the big screen.
Among the Branded is a book that will stay with you long after you have turned the last page. Matter of fact, I want to go back and reread it in order to catch all the subtleties I likely missed the first time around. This is a great, impactful debut novel and I can’t wait to read more from Ms. Smolkin.
Personally, I felt I was sort of 'dragged' along at times. (If I had any writing talent myself, I'm sure I could explain/clarify exactly what I mean!)
However, I would recomend and read this author again.
Linda Smolkin’s Among the Branded explores family, history, and difficult decisions. The novel is set in the present day, but the historical component is the heartbreaking part. The main character finds a letter that changes and enriches her life. The characters are strong and stick with you even when you finish the story because you admire their strength. It is a compelling debut novel.
