    Story
    "Disappointing and tedious"

    For some reason I thought the title of this book was intriguing. I'm afraid that's the only good thing I found about it. Jo has to be one of the most irritating characters I have ever read. She's supposed to be an optimist but all she seems to do is moan and act like an idiot.

    The book was overlong and as for the ending? Hmmm.

    Story
    "A slow burner"
    What did you like most about The State We're In?

    I liked the narrator, she made the different characters come alive quite well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The first half was very slow but if you stick with it it does get better.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Add a bit more emotion to the characters so you can really buy into them.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The ending made me sad.


    Any additional comments?

    Dont give up on this book because it starts slow. Its worth it in the end.
