Top critical review
A badly constructed story.
19 August 2018
After five chapters of this book I was really bored with the repetitiveness of the narrative. No point in outlining this weird story as other reviewers have already done so, but the part that actually made my hackles rise was when the main character Hannah and her female colleagues (she is an accountant in a company employing both sexes) is advised by a female director to check her appearance in the mirror three times a day where she should re-apply her mascara, lipstick and of course, carry her hair-straighteners with her to touch up her hair because because women need to stay ahead of the game working with men!!! Er, helllo, are we still living in the 1950's!!! I was already bored with the story by then and just couldn't stomach much more of this drivel so I gave up.
Had there been a bit more information about Hannah's character and her family relationships I might have persevered but there wasn't which left me totally in the dark and made understanding her or having any empathy almost impossible.
