Book Snap #58

Title: Bina

Author: Anakana Schofield

Date Read: July 31, 2019

Oh snap!

I thought the structure of this novel seemed compelling; there was a mixture of what looked like poetry, lists, and prose. It is introduced as a novel written in warnings, scrabbled words on the backs of envelopes from a woman who has had enough. It grew old quickly.

Although true to the character Schofield has imagined, I found Bina’s repetitive ramblings tiresome. There is a good story there– but I felt like it wound around itself over and over and nothing new was ever really revealed.

There are no bad books… only books that haven’t found the right reader. I was not the right reader for Bina.
