This week I read On Such a Full Sea by Chang-Rae Lee. If you've read my book posts you understand that I like to know as little as possible about a book before I read it. With this book I knew literally nothing. I was instantly drawn in by Lee's prose and mysterious framework for an unraveling story told from the 'we' POV. You quickly learn that it's 150 years after America's downfall. It's a dystopian tale of sorts.
As much as I loved the writing (I highlighted quotes all over the place), the plot left me utterly disappointed. It wandered until it was lost. There has to be a word for 'being-so-entranced-by-a-book-and-its-characters-and-feeling-totally-let-down-after-spending-7-hours-of-your-time-with-it.'
Hopefully I enjoy my next book a bit more. If you have any recommendations please leave a comment!
