an absolutely true 18-word book review

Last night I finished listening to a book that I really thought I'd love. Based on the recommendations and the smashing reviews, I was all prepared for a life-altering experience. Here's my official review:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time IndianThe Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

good, but I didn't love it. i'll let it marinate for a while and maybe i'll grow fonder.

View all my reviews

Does this ever happen to you? You hear about a book, get intrigued, read it, and...meh. I mean, it's not that I didn't like it - I liked it. I just didn't lllooooouuuuurrve it.

Books like these, I like to let them mature a while inside my head. Maybe I revisit. Maybe I just find myself thinking about it in those spaces between other things, and then i think some more, and some more, and then I decide I loved it.

Time will tell.

Have you read this one? What did you think?
