Reviews of Jane: a murder on goodreads

Reviews of Jane: a murder on goodreads

I couldn’t find many book reviews for Jane: a murder besides the ones already listed in our syllabus, so I thought I’d post a link to the ones I found on good reads. It’s interesting to read a cross section of reviews and to compare your own reading experience with that of others. I found that a lot of the topics I had questions about came out in these reviews as well, for instance, the topic of ‘powerful subject matter’ and how different people were either attracted by it or weary of it. It’s also kind of interesting to notice that a lot of the 5 star reviews are very emotionally driven without much literary insight while the 3 and 4 star reviews tend to really grapple with the text, the format and the issues that it raises.
