Review: Lost & Found

Review of Lost & Found
by Brooke Davis:
My Thoughts:
DNF 40%

I am always the girl in the minority. Why? I just don't seem to like any of the well-loved books that everyone else does - or I love the book that everyone despises like
The Brokenhearted. One day I'll get it right... but today isn't that day.

Lost & Found was recommended to me by Connie at Dillons - the supervisor of the book shop where I did my work experience a couple of months ago. It was one of the most best-selling books of the week and I was the one that designed the window display for it. Connie couldn't stop talking about this book, recommending it over and over again. I just don't understand why...

This book is weird. I don't mean its like a
Roald Dahl book, I mean more like a David Almond weird. There writing style was practically verse but not quite. The sentences were short. The metaphors weird and abstract. The writing was just like Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
- another book that was so "weird" that I couldn't get into it.

I really regret that I wasn't able to adore this book like so many other people have but it just wasn't for me. I don't cope with this style of writing and I was struggling far too much to be able to enjoy it.
