@librofm [[partner]] 🐈 Book Review 🐈
I read Long Bright Winter last week and was happy to have a free audio copy from Librofm and @penguinrandomhouse to help me get through it faster!
I felt like this book was split into two separate stories: a police procedural/murder mystery and a family story of how drug abuse hurts everyone involved. I felt like both stories were good, but that they didn’t necessarily need to go together. I liked both parts, but honestly would have preferred them to be two separate books.
I can say that the writing itself was very good, with enough lyrical quality to make it heartfelt, but not so much that it was overpowering. Long Bright River is definitely a heavy read that can be a little sad at times yet surprisingly relatable. Overall, I liked it but didn’t love it. I do think it’s worth reading and that different people may get different things out of it.
