At times like an essay on peoples' feelings
The writing is analytical, like an essay on her characters rather than a revelation of them. Starting my next book (by John Fowles) was like turning on the light in a dim room. A few sentences of his writing made hers seem pedestrian. 2 stars for the writing.
Where you can find me is an ambitious character study in people who have suffered terrible trauma. It has the characters behave in strange ways which is probably to be expected. At times it felt insightful and convincing but at times I felt she was guessing. 3 stars for the story.
Therese Plummer reads sensitively but her tone is slightly grating and lacks variety for the different characters' voices. 4 stars for the narration as a lot is probably due to the writing..
Gripping and informative.
