What disappointed you about Idiopathy?
Dialogue was too realistic for characters that aren't realistic enough! An awful infuriating female protagonist with no redeeming features (in my opinion) and quite unlikely that anyone could be with her for so long. A protagonist doesn't need to be likable, however the dialogue does at least need to have purpose. The arguments between the central couple went round in circles, not really making sense. And rather than reaching any kind of conclusion, they petered off, leaving me wondering what the point of including it in the story was. And leaving me annoyed at having experienced such a stupid argument.My other criticism is that the plot takes an age to unfold, without much payoff and it doesn't feel like it should have. Action and plot that could have been done with in 4 chapters or so, takes the majority of the book. I am disappointed, as I was looking forward to this book coming out, and enjoyed the sample and blurb!
Would you ever listen to anything by Sam Byers again?
What does Melody Grove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Good overall performance
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
It made me want to throw things.
Any additional comments?
There are plenty of other books about relationships with fallible but redeeming characters out there.
