My Reviews

 
Informative, Interesting, Insightful

Country Dark by Chris Offutt
 

 
Unconvincing, Difficult, Poorly Written

The descriptive adjectives I actually would like to use for this book are:
*Offensive
*Racist
*Misogynistic
*Patronizing

The author used every 1990’s stereotyping trope he could insert. His portrayal of races and ethnicities should be the foundation of basic “how not to write”
examples. ‘His’ attempt to write from a woman’s perspective an abject failure.

To say I came away loathing the author is an understatement. The story itself could have been written so much more believably without the author’s prejudices.
