Book Review | Bound by Antonya Nelson


bBound is a difficult book for me to review, simply because I care so very little about it. The characters were fine. The plot was OK. The writing was inoffensive but not particularly skilled. There was an entire subplot about a serial killer that seemed to be completely pointless, mostly because the tension wasn’t built appropriately, and the resolution of said subplot was underwhelming.

I was left with the feeling that this book needed to be both much longer, and much shorter. Nothing was really developed very well, yet it seemed like the author went on and on about every detail. Overall, though I appreciate receiving it from the Goodreads First Reads program, the book was highly unsatisfying and I wouldn’t recommend it.
