Review: Faithful: A Novel


Faithful: A Novel
Faithful: A Novel by Davitt Sigerson
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I hated this book. It was one of those rare books that felt like it was harder to read than it should have been. This was another case of a book with characters that were just horrible people. They were uninteresting, even though their lives were so dramatic. The drama itself felt more tedious than it did entertaining.

It was boring. Seriously boring. People may want to call it complex, but it really isn’t. It’s just bad writing.

And the sex scenes? Oh my goodness. They were awful. Most of the time they felt demeaning. Sometimes they, along with the other commentary about the lives of these characters, just came across as completely misogynistic. It’s almost like a treatise in demeaning women, especially ones who are willing to admit that they enjoy sex.

It almost felt like I was watching some horrible reality television program. No, wait. It was worse because the Kardashians have healthier relationships than these people.
