Not My Usual Read

My Absolute Darling: A Novel - Gabriel Tallent

I wasn't sure if I was going to like this book. It's not my usual read, that's for sure. I do occassionally pick up something 'literary' and enjoy it for the most part, as long as it isn't overwritten and has a strong story. Well, this one is both. I loved it. The story itself is nothing short of heartbreaking but it felt very real and the characters felt quite genuine. The ending wasn't really a surprise but it was quite satisfying.
