Book Review Of “The Lesser Bohemians” By Elimear McBride
One night an eighteen-year-old Irish girl, recently arrived in London to attend drama school, meets an older man – a well-regarded actor in his own right. While she is naive and thrilled by life in the big city, he is haunted by more than a few demons, and the clamorous relationship that ensues risks undoing them both.
A captivating story of passion and innocence, joy and discovery set against the vibrant atmosphere of 1990s London over the course of a single year, THE LESSER BOHEMIANS glows with the eddies and anxieties of growing up, and the transformative intensity of a powerful new love (Both photo and synopsis from Goodreads)
Thank you to Blogging For Books for sending me a free copy of this book, in exchange of this honest review.
I took forever to read this, it sat for a few months. I wanted to love it, but once I started, it just didn’t grab me. The writing style and its confusing nature just wasn’t my thing, I did finish the book, as much as I wanted to DNF it. I didn’t enjoy the characters, I didn’t like them, and when I don’t like the people I am reading about, I pretty much conclude that I don’t like the book. Sadly this was just not a good choice for me. Far too much drama.
