I realized that I forgot to post about book 19. It is not the most memorable book in the batch. It reads a bit like an almost polished 3rd draft of a really great idea of a story and its narrative form. But it didn’t quite read the finesse or the emotional impact that the author must have aimed for during the project. It might have been more successful as a novella in an anthology — if it had been distilled to its most startling scenes that really leave one singular strong impression. But, alas, it is presented as a novel and many of the passages are diluted and don’t hold enough power.
