#15 — The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy: A Novel

The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy: A Novel by Rachel Joyce
Rating: 3/5
  • Perhaps Joyce didn’t want to repeat everything that happened in The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, so she assumed readers already had lot of knowledge about the previous book. Although I had read Harold Fry last April, I still had a hard time remembering what happened
  • The best of example of two books written about a shared experience from opposing points of view was Gilead and Lila by Marilynne Robinson. Both books are complete and can stand alone, yet the both of them when read together offers a more satisfying experience
  • Like her previous book, the ending adds a twist you don’t see coming; it comes off a bit gimmicky and takes away from the rest of the story
