Review: The Republic of Love: A Novel by Carol Shields


The Republic of Love: A NovelThe Republic of Love: A Novel by Carol Shields

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I requested this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much for this book.

This is the second book written by Carol Shields that I have read.

The story of the main characters, Fay and Tom, was not able to keep reader’s interest into the plot. The narrative just flows without any further engagement.

As in “The Stone Diaries” which won Man Booker Prize Nominee for Shortlist (1993), Pulitzer Prize for Fiction (1995), National Book Critics Circle Award (1994), I wasn’t able to go really deep in the reading of this new novel, even if I am a big of the Canadian contemporary fiction. I must confess this was a very disappointing read, what a pity.
