What Kind of Book is The Things

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

This is definitely a quirky story… and after having read it several times I can’t decide whether I like it or hate it. Having the characters be called “Things” kept tripping me up reading it aloud for some reason, which didn’t help.

Human Development Degree, Book-loving aunt

This is a more odd and eccentric story, thought it has some fun, appealing aspects. I like how different and unique the book is, but it was a little too strange and disjointed for my liking.
