Oh my gah!

No One Else Can Have You - Kathleen  Hale

I thought I'd hate it due to the DNF and low rating this book was getting, but I am REALLY enjoying it. Kippy's voice is real, genuine, and awkward. Not awkward as in like the prose is terrible, but awkward in a sense you can really feel her introvert-ness and shyness and her lack of social skills and everything else seeping from the pages. I don't think any of it are forced, because there is an abundance of great internal monologue that makes her personality shine.

 

It's also a pretty dark book, despite being character-driven. The parts where we get out of her mind and see the rest of the people in this town of Frienship can be disturbing, as there are layers of meaning underneath the dialogue.

 

Pretty unconventional book, but I LIKE it a lot.
