Review of 'Blackbirds' on 'Storygraph'

3 stars

I had a love-hate thing going with this book that flip-flopped from paragraph to paragraph.
It's well written, even if the overabundance of death and putrefaction metaphors is rather trite given the subject matter and gets boring after a while. And Louis is really the only character with any redeemable qualities.
But I liked the overall plot. And I enjoyed the way it was structured. And, given the ending (which I won't spoil) I have some hope for Miriam's future development into less of an asshole. So I'll be reading the next book, but I won't be losing my reservations about this one.

Damn gorgeous cover, though.
