The shortest book review ever

The book: Grief is the Thing with Feathers, by Max Porter


The review: Wow.


That’s it. Everything I want to say.

Can I tell you what happens? I don’t want to tell you what happens.

Can I tell you about the writing style? I don’t want to tell you about the writing style.

Am I glad I read it? No, because now I’ll never be able to come to it new again.

If you haven’t read it, you can come to it new, which is why I don’t want to tell you anything about it.

So there you have it.

    | | | Hello Jenny, Firstly I hope you are well and happy.  I’m still busy doing bits & bobs on the house and digging and weeding outside! The book you mention sounds intriguing – so I have ordered a copy. Look forward to working with you again. Kindest regards,Rosie. |

  2. This is the most unique book review I have ever read, You haven’t told me about the plot, but I’m intrigued to read it because you say you will never be able to read afresh again (but you wish you could). An interesting take on a book review.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
