The Invisible Life of Addie Larue by V.E Schwab snapshot: Attempting to escape an arranged marriage in France in 1714, young Addie makes a deal with a god of the night that will irrevocably change her life forever. This is a tale spanning centuries. Addie has one main desire…to be remembered.
Writing style: sophisticated and engaging
Characterization: I struggled here. I could not relate to Addie. I felt she should be more in tune with herself after so many years alive. Henry was more palatable.
Plot: Great concept. I didn’t care for how the story played out.
Interest: I wanted to give up about a third of the way on but kept going because my friend really liked it. I switched to the audio version in order to make it through.
Bottom line: I can see why the book would appeal to many people, but it wasn’t for me. 3/5 stars.
