The Vanishing Half

Month: May

Book: The Vanishing Half

Author: Brit Bennett

I don’t know…

I was looking for a book to read so googled New York Times Best Sellers of 2020 and this book screamed at me. It’s about twins. One disappears. That was all it took to get me interested.

I didn’t enjoy the read. I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing style, and the storyline was just ‘meh’ in my humble opinion.

Halfway through, I almost gave up wondering where the hell Stella was. I had to call my friend Faridah (an actual avid book reader and fellow twin) to convince me to keep going. Having uncovered her whereabouts and her entire story, I’m not going to lie, I was underwhelmed.

Now that I’ve expressed all I disliked about the book, I must say that it was refreshing to have so many different stories intertwined and woven back together as one. Chapters weren’t clearly cut into characters perspectives, but somehow, I could keep up and I liked that.
