The New World: A Novel by Andrew Motion
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This would have easily made that fifth star rating had the male lead been a touch more masculine and the setting more fitting the style of the author’s writing. That said, it’s easily a four star book with exceptional handling of the English language and how to best utilize wording. The descriptions are very well developed without going overboard. The plot is a touch cliche but it is still interesting enough with good pacing to keep the pages turning. I received an ARC through Penguin Random House in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
