  1. I’ve heard such mixed things about this it’s great to read your balanced viewpoint. It will probably remain low on my list of books from the Women’s Prize to get to but I do still hope to read it before the shortlist announcement is made.

  2. Great review! I am dreading this one slightly less now. It’s too bad the narrative is framed so oddly, but I am glad to hear there should be plenty of interesting commentary to look forward to at least. Hurrah for pleasant surprises! And hopefully the longlist will keep looking up from here.

  3. Great review! I’m glad the book ended up being better than you had expected. Your review is the most positive one I’ve seen so far haha. Now I’m curious to see where I will fall on the spectrum of opinions!

  4. So was this the one, you expected to be the low-point from the longlist? In that case, it bodes well for the rest of the list. As you say, it probably helps to have low expectations to begin with.

  5. Great review! I’ve read several really positive and some quite negative reviews of this one. I think I’m still intrigued enough that I’ll eventually have to pick it up and try it myself!

  6. Omg of course her name is Rachel 😂 I’m glad this wasn’t as disastrous as expected but ugh I still am not looking forward to it…
