The Drowning Girl by Caitlín R. Kiernan
Posted by Krystal Larson at 8:39 PM Wednesday, February 29, 2012
India is schizophrenic and the reader will know her as Imp in the novel. She has a distinct and intriguing personality that a reader will either like instinctively or have a hard time connecting to. The story is told from her perspective in the first person, making it easier for the reader to get to know her. Imp will inform the reader of the "family curse" that seems to strike random females within her family tree. The reader will enjoy getting the facts on Imp's background and past. Imp is one of the rare characters who holds nothing back. She will reveal all to the reader, almost to the point where the reader wants her to stop. Her thoughts seem to run together fluidly, but with no real transitions. Although the reader could almost get confused, the author keeps the stories and histories from blending together.
The reader will enjoy meeting Imp's unique love interest. In a way, she keeps Imp stable...or as stable as possible. Her character is interesting and will likely appeal to the reader. When an surprise comes in and interrupts their somewhat idyllic world, the reader will be both surprised at the twists and turns in the plot and have a hard time putting this book down. Imp's world could be considered zany, but she seems to enjoy it at times. The reader will become accustomed to Imp's world and maybe even begin to enjoy it. The vivid emotions and shocking revelations will keep the reader on his/her toes. Imp's unusual world will captivate the reader with its sudden imaginings and off-the-wall conclusions. Overall, this book is worth a second look on Goodreads or Amazon and recommended to adult readers.
