WHAT I THOUGHT
I wish there had been more character development is what I thought.
Clutter is under 50 pages, easily read on your lunch break, perhaps two if they’re short breaks. I like shorter stories but I felt like this one was a little too short for the story being told. Some bad things happen to the characters but I can’t say I felt terribly bad for them. I felt bad about what happened but I wasn’t really invested in the characters. Perhaps some deeper character development may have changed that - I don’t know.
All in all I liked the premise for the story and no doubt some of the things described would most definitely be occurring right now in real life. I couldn’t even imagine how I would react if I had been in the same shoes. I can’t go into much more detail than what I have already because it will give away crucial clues. It was an okay read but I think it could have been better had certain aspects been expanded.
Thank you to Donna Butler for providing me with a copy of Clutter – thanks, Donna!
