The Mothers: A Novel - Brit Bennett

I received this book for free through a complimentary Quarterly Literary Box.

I really liked this book. First off, it is incredibly well written. It was such an easy read. Some books I find myself slogging through but I didn't with this book. Everything just flowed nicely and it was effortless to read if that makes any sense.

The characters felt very real and dynamic. The author did a good job giving everyone's perspective.

I loved the setting of San Diego and how it was incorporated.

As for the abortion element, I thought it was handled well. I didn't take any issue with it.

A little random but one of my favorite quotes was, "A girl's first time was supposed to hurt. Suffering pain is what made you a woman. Most of the milestones in a woman's life were accompanied by pain, like her first time having sex or birthing a child. For men, it was all orgasms and champagne" (210). As soon as I read that I was like, Ain't that the truth!

Overall, I was really impressed by this. It was an amazing debut novel.

The Mothers: A Novel
The Mothers: A Novel - Brit Bennett This book deals with a lot of deep issues: parent and child relationships, suicide, religion, anti-abortion vs. prochoice, are some of the main points. It follows a small group and tells how they feel about everything. It's interesting and many will love it. I didn't connect with it as well as I would have liked to, but I did like it. As I said there are lots of topics, but the main one to me seemed to be the effects of abortion.
