Book Review: The Grief of Others by Leah Hager Cohen

I’m not sure what to think of this novel. The story sounded interesting. But, I had a really hard time getting into the story – the characters didn’t grab me at all – I never really understood their motivations. The timeline was somewhat disjointed and hard to follow at times. I kept waiting for something to happen, but nothing ever did.

As I read, the picture in my mind of the setting was always foggy and in black and white – I think that’s reflective of my lack of interest in the story. If I hadn’t been reading this for the Library Thing Early Reviewers program, I probably would not have finished this book. Honestly, I’m relieved it’s over.
