Book Review: A Short History of Women



I read at night because it relaxes me and I sleep better.  I tried to read A Short History of Women by Kate Walbert.  There were lots of rave reviews for this novel online and on the back of the book so I expecting an awesome read.  This novel just put me to sleep.  And after two nights of boredom I gave up and put it in the pile of books to return to the library.  I found the idea of the book very interesting but the writing is overly artsy and vague, the characters were difficult to get to know and I never was able to get into the story.  I may be alone in my opinion of this novel, but that's okay.
