  • 2.5 stars A quirky and unique story revolving around an English graduate student working on her dissertation Unfortunately, the promise of a wickedly funny debut completely missed its mark for me While I enjoyed following some of the main characters experiences, a lot of what happened seemed random and awkward I was simply not the proper audience for this novel Thank you to Little, Brown and Company for providing me with a physical ARC to read and review.


  • Thank you to the publisher Little, Brown and Company who provided an advance reader copy via NetGalley.I was drawn to this book by the cover artwork and the premise that it involved books The story began with the main character Anna Brisker on a supermarket line where a woman in a bright orange raincoat discovered her pockets were empty My first thought was, Did she borrow the raincoat from Ringo who wore that for The Beatles final concert on Apple headquarter s rooftop Anyway, Anna lent th Than [...]


  • An interesting debut novel about a graduate student struggling with her dissertation on the origins of artistic inspiration Relatives who d once admired my precocity were beginning to wonder what was taking so long Her thesis advisor has told her to find a case study for her hypothesis She stumbles across the niece of a well known short story author, Freddy Langley, someone who was prolific for a few years and then just stopped publishing He would seem to be the perfect subject to use for An int [...]


  • Smart, unique and clever TALENT by JULIET LAPIDOS was an interesting, steady paced, and quirky story that was a little structurally mentally challenging for me to read The blurb states that this is a wickedly funny debut novel that I definitely didn t find funny at all or it went way over my head I kind of lack the sense of understanding the dark humour here JULIET LAPIDOS delivers an intriguing and well written read here that I really wanted to fully embrace and love I have this nee Smart, uniq [...]


  • 3.5 starsI feel like Talent can best be described as an academic literary thriller and is something I have not read anything like before Like Norma mentioned I do like to challenge myself by reading books that require me to think differently I do think it took on a bit of a psychological feel to it as well as some of these characters were unreliable and manipulative At times it felt a little bit like a psychological playground with the characters The writing took on a bit of a chaotic f 3.5 star [...]


  • Talent is a gorgeously written academic satire, focusing on floundering doctoral student Anna Brisker Sadly, gorgeous writing is all Talent has, as its plot lands the satire but fails when it tries to make broader points about writing and people and life so, you know, everything It also, aside from Anna, suffers from character description syndrome, where in this case, beautifully written appearance coat, shoes, lipstick, hair, state of general grooming, etc are meant to convey depth in t Talent [...]


  • Well, as the saying goes it takes talent to recognize talent By that logic does it make me a talented reviewer to recognize what a clever book Talent is I love books, books about books, authors, etc but primarily I read for pleasure The protagonist of this book, and the main secondary character also for that matter, are two individuals who are also around books all day, but they utilize them in different ways One, the 29 year old graduate student stuck on finishing her dissertation, dissect Well [...]
