These Women by Ivy Pochoda


DNF @ 20%

This was a buddy-read with my friend, Heather. I bought this book ages ago because it sounded kind of like Marie Rutkoski's REAL EASY, a flawed book that I nevertheless liked because it kind of shone a light on adult entertainment and how the industry leaves some women prone. I wasn't expecting this book to be so stream-of-conscious style, or to feel so surreal. So many of my friends rated it highly and I went in expecting a more traditional style of gritty thriller, and instead got something that was... odd.

Odd can work, but it also makes the book a little more niche because it has to be your kind of odd for you to enjoy it. This was not my kind of odd and I found it quite boring and frustrating, so I will give it a pass.

2 out of 5 stars
