When She Was Electric: A Novel

When She Was Electric: A Novel - Andrea MacPherson Everything in this book was pale, luminous, silvery, intricate, delicate. The characters were fluid, pale, fragile and were constantly slipping beneath bodies of water. The writing is so self-consciously ethereal that it came off as affected. Plus, the author really overused simile and lots of times the comparison just didn't work. The story didn't live and I was unmoved.

If the author would stop writing what she thinks a book is and write something authentic, she might end up being a fine writer.
