Review of Lost: A Novel: #123

by Gregory Maguire

“Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister” is one of my favorite books of all-time, so I’ve been looking forward to reading this one for a while. Unfortunately, it turned out to be something of a disappointment. The story was interesting, but I found the writing to be uncomfortable to read (which, probably, was the intention, given the story line, but I did find it particularly enjoyable). Also, the main character is a difficult person whom I find it hard to like, enjoy, or really even care about. I almost cared more about all the people around her, hoping she wouldn’t do anything to harm them. On the whole, it was interesting and I did keep reading, but I can’t say I enjoyed it. 6/10
