Year 4, Book 29

29. Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje
I read this book for one of my book clubs. It’s kind of comprised of two stories. The first half of the book is about a family of 2 sisters and their father plus the farmhand who grew up with them after his parents were killed when he was 4 years old. The second half of the book is the story of some French writer who one of the sisters researches. The first story cuts off pretty abruptly and never got picked back up, which rather annoyed me. I also didn’t care that much for the story of the writer and really felt that the author should have stuck to the original story and explored it more as there were lots of unanswered questions. I give it a 4 out of 10.

    I had forgotten what your review said, so now that I’m 3/4 through the book, I re-read it to see if my fears were accurate. Seriously? He just leaves us hanging with Claire, Anna, and Coop? I don’t even want to finish. Damn artists. 🙂
