Read full description of the books The Lesser Bohemians:The prose was challenging for me -It felt unnatural and awkward.
...plus, I didn't think much of the story. Many drama students go to London to study acting, only to get caught up in more drama off stage than on.
It's no different for the main female. The drama takes place off stage when an Irish woman becomes involved with an older man- a more seasoned stage actor twice her age.
I'd read sentences and paragraphs over and over...hoping each time I'd feel 'something'.
Here is an example of a paragraph I read three times:
"Still and so we're here for Art. She has tickets while I have a heart that I hope art will burn. But her shrug au gait keep my mouth shut and I map my gait on how she walks.
Blasé with the sculptures. Stooping to the glass. Paintings mostly lingered at the same amount of time. So this is how I do it too and when the crowd gets hard for art to squeeze out through I chase after. Encourage it myself".
I think the book cover is lovely......and the title intriguing.
As for the novel itself...I didn't comprehend parts of the dialogue. I didn't enjoy having to struggle and doubt my intelligence.....( I did both: struggled and questioned my intelligence).
When books are 'too' challenging - too odd- for me to understand ---unless I have a reading coach to support my reading process - then I just feel as if I've fallen flat on my face - alone - without a supporting hand to help me out! It's not fun.
This novel hurt my brain...and self-esteem. But kudos to those who see the beauty and brilliance. I mean it! The readers who sincerely rate this book 5 stars ---and I bet there will be many who love this book- win- as they are the ones who take in deeper depths of value and enjoyment. Please read more reviews. I simply am not smart enough for this type of writing.
Thank you very much to Crown Publishing, Netgalley, and Eimear McBride.
