November 2014: We Are Completely Beside Ourselves

Heyyyy Everyone, 

See I promised I would read this one in a month and I've done it! Although I don't quite know how I've managed it because I have been trying to avoid this book. I have to give honest reviews and this book is genuinely not what I thought it would be. And I've struggled to get through it. 

The synopsis made out like it was going to be this big thriller, a girl who tells the story about how and why her brother and sister went missing. But *SPOILER* turns out her sister was a chimpanzee, and her upbringing was an experiment by her psychologist father. I know, it just didn't interest me. I think if you were interested in psychology and testing on animals and that kind of thing you might of found some of the information in it quite interesting but it just didn't float my boat. 

Once I start reading a book I can't not finish it, same with a movie, even if its crap I watch it all the way through. The story did have a nice ending and some funny bits in the middle, but just not enough to keep me hooked. I'm not sure I'll be passing this book onto anyway I'm afraid. Sorry Karen Joy Fowler! 

Next month I will be reading 'Starter for Ten' By David Nicholls. I absolutely LOVED 'One Day', so I am sure I will enjoy this book too! 

Ciao Emma Jessica <3
