Review: Love & Other Subjects by Kathleen Shoop

Love and Other SubjectsLove and Other Subjects by Kathleen Shoop
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Introduction - I liked that the introduction didn't drag or that the author doesn't give you chapters of happy stuff before finally letting things go downhill for her main character. From the first chapter, you feel how tensed Carolyn is and things get worse by chapter two.

Structure - I liked this book very much. It was easy to understand and made all the points it set out to make from the beginning. Because the book is told from Carolyn's point of view, it got a bit grating for me at some points but overall I liked the book.

Characters - There were quite a few secondary characters in this book. They appear for a short while and you think they are going to have some grand impact on the story but eventually just fade off as a passing moment in Carolyn's life. No complaints about this. Given what Carolyn was going through, I would have probably done the same. i.e. forgotten a few people from my past.

Disclosure - I received a free copy of this book from the author via Orangeberry Book Tours. I was not obliged to write a positive review.
