Excellent. Particulièrement les différentes perspectives d’une même histoire racontée par plusieurs protagonistes. Facile à lire, prenant

Reason read; Booker winner 2019. I really enjoyed this book and given the fact that there is a lot of sex, violence, and gender identity topics, that is saying something. This book is well written. Of course I listened to it so that makes the unique style not difficult. I enjoyed the different women's stories and I learned stuff. This is about 12 women, mostly black women, who's lives are all connected in some way. It starts with Anna at her theater presentation and it ends with the theater presentation but in-between there are the stories of all these women. It was well done, not heavy handed in anyway and not pushing any agenda. All the women are different just as you would expect people to be different from each other.

This book wasn't quite what I expected - a bit more of a collection of disparate character studies, rather than anything more plot-directed, despite the interwoven threads of the character's lives. That interweaving was really intriguing, I love seeing people from different angles and points of view, and the way they crossed and recrossed each others' lives was so well done and fascinating.

There were some content notes I would have appreciated knowing about beforehand, honestly (infidelity, drugs, quite a few sexual violence happenings or references, some of which were handled in such a way that skirted very near triggers for me).

The poetry-prose hybrid style gave it a unique feel. Personally the lack of any full stops anywhere in the book, and the likewise lack of anything to denote beginnings or ends of sentences, made it tiring to read at times. The use of linebreaks midsentence and as a stylistic point was really well done practically everywhere it was used and had a good impact.

I didn't like the book, but it was interesting. I winced through some portions of it (large swathes of Morgan's story, for example) and while sometimes the uncomfortable or bigoted/judgemental views seemed true to characters' perspectives, sometimes there seemed to be something bleeding through from the author's perspective herself.
