Book Review: A Gate at the Stairs by Lorrie Moore

Posted on: May 24, 2012

I don’t understand why this book received such stellar reviews. The writing was just too much – bizarre, disjointed phrases, overly loaded with adjectives. Difficult to read. I had a hard time believing the main character – a college sophomore – would be having the kind of thoughts she was. The plot was all over the place, and important pieces just trailed off. The end was horrible. I would not recommend this book. I’m just glad I checked it out from the library and didn’t spend money on it.
