Beckie reads The Rehearsal by Eleanor Catton

Why did you read this book?: Because of The Luminaries, and I read that it also had an intriguing structure.

Has Jeremy read it?: Yes. It took me a while to finish this one because every time I took a break, I wasn’t that motivated to pick it up again.

42 word review: An impressive first novel about the roles people play in everyday life. The ambitious structure and perspectives couldn’t entirely carry the weaker characters and story. I enjoyed it while reading, but ultimately, I didn’t care enough to work out what everything meant.

Rating: 3 saxophones (out of 5)
