Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
All three samples this week came from the Best Fiction of 2016 list, according to Publishers Weekly.
One Hundred Twenty-One Days by Michèle Audin
Summary: The story of French mathematicians and their lives through World Wars I and II.
I’m thinking: No – too much going on with different narrative styles.
What Belongs to You by Garth Greenwell
Summary: A guy looking for a casual encounter meets charismatic hustler, Mitko. He returns to Mitko again and again, and their trysts grow increasingly unnerving.
I’m thinking: No – despite the intriguing beginning, I didn’t love the style.
Mischling by Affinity Konar
Summary: 1944, twin sisters separated from each other at Auschwitz.
I’m thinking: Yes, it will crush me, but yes.
