Thank you NetGalley and Amazon Original Stories for the chance to read and review this.

Honestly, it was just okay. While Greer's mom is fascinating, I wonder if he really was able to describe her. The road trip felt dry at times and he wasn't able to make it seem like that intense an experience even when it probably was.

However, I did just find int that "Peter, Paul and Mary" was a band. I always thought it was just Britney.

Meh. Really didn’t like this much. Was overly boring and in a weird way more about the gay brother, Felix, than the protagonist, Greta. Also, I’m pretty sure only a man could write a woman choosing to stay in 1918 as pregnant, rather than returning to her own time in 1985.

Just meh. No. No more of Greer for me now that I’ve read the two novels of his that I own, and didn’t think much of either. Max Tivoli was definitely not up my alley, and this one really wasn’t either.

This was much duller than I expected. It’s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as a novel spun out in endless dull details, mostly concerning the ever-present trope of the ONE woman, Alice. It wasn’t clever, subversive, or anything but a long slog of a dude who is creepily infatuated with a 14 year old girl, and can’t shut up about how he is ageing backwards. Just no. Pointless.

It did not encourage me to seek out more of Greer’s work.

I feel it uses AIDs, war and the 1912 pandemic as coarse gimmicks to advance the plot, instead of treating them with any degree of sensitivity.
