The Plot by Jean Hanff Korelitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Logophiles will delight in the eloquent structure and vocabulary of this innovative thriller. As someone who enjoys writing and crafting sentences, reading this was an absolute treat, not only because it deals intimately with the writing process and the inner workings of publishing and authors, but every phrase is a lesson in terminology and verbiage aesthetics. Not to mention, you’re reading two different books at the same time, bouncing between the main story, and the story that is the reason for all the drama that makes up this book. Aside from this structural deviation, all the traditional anticipated twists and turns are present. There are times when it’s difficult to wrap your head around some of the wilder concepts of the main character’s amateur sleuthing, or the crazy cast developments, but it still makes for a compelling and worthy weekend read.
An advanced copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher. The opinions are my own.
