Luster by Raven Leilani
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First off listening to this on netgalley audio I was so not used to the way this book was written.
Was I going to like it?
I’ll stick with it I though as I’m relaxing.
Oh my! Eddie the protagonist is such a young fiesty, determined, out of the normal zone character I’ve ever met. In your face, so close you could kiss her! And that’s what her lifestyle was about, getting by, by whatever means she needed.
Signing a contract of rules when sleeping with a guy twice her age, problem is, there’s a problem.....
And no, not just that the guys married, oh no, it’s an open marriage so no problem there, it’s something else for sure.
I got so lost in listening to this and so need deep in its “draw me in” writing, I forgot to put my roast on! At least I could move fast still listening to this audio book.
The narrator was great. I feel the voice was so fluent and the pitch power and pace spot on.
I don’t think everyone is going to like this book. It’s different.
It’s gutsy, it smacks a punch and the area of writing is not usual. But if you’re willing to try something less conventional in the book world I’d say go for this.
I really didn’t think I was going to like it as much as I did. But once I learned why Eddie fell into these kind of situations I could reconcile with reading more.
I went in blind. I expected to maybe not like it as I’m older generation and came out with,..wow, that was a punch.
