A Secret Kept

A Secret Kept - Tatiana de Rosnay

Rating: 3.5?

I still don't know how I feel. There were things I loved about the book but things I loathed as well.

Review to come.

Edit: I decided to rate this a solid 3 stars.

The MC was such an unlikeable douche. Just the misogyny and the slut-shaming of a teenage girl. YUCK. I am not sure if we are supposed to like him or not.

The writing itself was pretty good. It was like binging on french wine hahaha get it.

Most of the female characters weren't not that well developed, but I don't know if that was because of the male narrator and his self-obsessed narration. Everyone revolved around him.

There was a character I had a crush on, but her hotness was diminished by banging the hero for some reason. I don't get his appeal, but whatevs.

The twist of the mother's lover was a woman, I did not see coming, and that was a pretty cool twist. It was the true tragedy of her dying for her love of the same sex.
