Review: Department of Speculation

Dept. of Speculation by [Jenny Offill]

Rating: 2/5 stars

Soooo… this was a different read for me. I was attempting to ‘expand my horizons’ if you will. I don’t regret reading it, this book just wasn’t for me. This was written in what I would describe as almost streams of consciousness, describing a woman’s perspective of her marriage and family life. It had its moments and even made me laugh a couple of times.

For the most part though it went over my head. I think I needed more context. I thought the premise was ambitious and many have liked it. I just felt as if I was being a bad listener and kept wanting to ask questions to clarify.

Oh well. The book I am reading now is amazing so I have already moved on.
