[Review] The Girl in the Tree by Sebnem Isiguzel /DID NOT FINISH/

From the cover to the blurb, The Girl in the Tree looked promising. I was intrigued and wanted to start reading it right away. However, after about halfway in the first chapter, I realized that the story was all over the place. The narration took a lot of turns that it was hard for me to follow the protagonist’s main point. ⁣

I put the book down and gave it another chance the next day. Nothing changed. I still felt lost as the narrative branched into a lot of mini-stories, that is why I decided not to finish it. I’m not sure if it was the translation that made it weird and confusing, or not. This one just did not appeal to me as I was reading along and I felt like I was only dragging myself page after page.⁣

I would still recommend this book though. I did not like it but it was not terrible. Other readers might enjoy the zigzagging turn of events and might give it more chance than I did.⁣


P.S.⁣
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
