Ibly richly detailed unreliable narrator she is simultaneously sympathetic and repellent and i could not look away i love her voice i love her dismal preoccupation with her body its size its

ending like The Girl n the Train it s the ride f the read that carries this book not the way it resolves and i loved the ridecome to my blog Ottessa Moshfegh s debut novel Eileen sounded like a great and intriguing read The 1960 s a girl s escape from a boring life in a small New England town a mysterious crime there are lots Being There of interesting plot points going for this book which will be

Witness to the Martyrdom: John Taylor's Personal Account of the Last Days of the Prophet Joseph Smith on her life First person narrative told by a despicable character in flashback is a bold choice for any novel let alone a debut novel Sometimes it works but sadly in this case it does notWith its depressing story and dragging plot I had to force myself to finish reading and found myself ready to simply abandon the book several times The twist is neither Hitchcockian nor is the writing anything like Shirley Jacksonr early Vladimir Nabokov as the description claimedIf you want a slow dull and very sad character study look no further If you want a plot twist that would make Hitchcock proud look elsewere UPDATE Kindle 199 special today I listened to the audiobook but thers who read it also
