It’s been a few days since I finished reading Bone Music. Normally I like to take a few days to think about what I read and gather my thoughts. By doing this I hope to put everything into more logical English. However, with this book, I’m still struggling with how I feel about it.
As I said last week in my Twist of Faith review I’ve been loving anything mystery, detective or thriller recently, so possibly that’s why I’m so confused because I’ve read so much of the same thing?
Anyway onto the book. I enjoyed reading it. The character of Charley was a good all-around character. She was relatable because who doesn’t wish sometimes that they can leave everything behind and start again? The rest of the characters I didn’t really have a strong reaction to.
If the book contained any mystery I didn’t find it. The small part of murder mystery didn’t really add much. It came in midway through the book and quickly solved and concluded before the reader had any time to invest. Then it was solved and the story finished before you invest in it. The storyline still kept me interested because I wanted to know what was going to happen next but there was also the element of not caring because there was nothing in there that pushed the story forward. It felt almost like an action film with lots happening but very little story pulling all the pieces together. You just keep watching because you want to know the ending. But the ending is probably what you thought it was going to be in the first place.
As I said earlier the whole thing left me confused, I can’t tell if I liked the book. I enjoyed reading it but didn’t have any strong feelings, either way, other than that.
Have you ever came away from reading a book feeling like this? Let me know in the comments. I’d love to know what book and why, if; unlike me, you can figure out your thoughts.
