    Nevím, co stručně k tomu napsat, takže Recenze zde: darameganknihy/201

    It took me two tries to figure out that there was something wrong. Yes, I read the whole thing twice in two days. But it made as much sense to me the second time as it did the first time, not much. It's not that the words were individually hard to decipher. It's not the theme, although it is distasteful, I've read books in the vein before and even liked them. It's also not that the book plays coy with the action, DeWitt lets it all hang out. I still found it hard to take in anything that was on [...]

    I wanted to like this more than I did. I found the prose to be dull and uninspiring, but that might just be an issue of taste since I see other reviews praising it. The dialogue felt strange as well. If it had been a longer book, I probably would have given up on it, but I pushed through to the end.


  • Elizabeth Jackson

    I apparently already read this? Seems memorable. Regardless, I cannot tolerate basic grammar errors in published works of literature. ITS. NOT IT'S. HIRE A DAMN EDITOR.


  • Kibbenza

    What even was this book? The plot is questionable and jumps around like I can't believe, there's highly questionable behavior from adults on a girl whose age I don't think is ever said (but who has not yet gotten her period), and nothinghappens? Like, it doesn't even seem to serve a purpose in the story.

    This is not a good book.However. If you are looking to finish your 2017 Book Riot Read Harder Challenge and you can't find a book published by a micropress at your public library, then I guess this one fits the bill, and it's available in the Hoopla app.


  • Douglas

    This felt it would be better as some kind of impressionistic cable television show. Aggressively quirky and oddball, written in prose that fractures meaning--but not in a good way. The main character's father resonated with me, but not much else.


  • Annie ~ The Misstery

    Read the review here >>White Nights In Split Town City was a strange and captivating book, sometimes even uncomfortable to read. I devoured it in less than two days, so it was obviously addictive, but it still left me a bit uneasy (although I know that was probably the author’s intention).If you want a conventional coming of age story, then this is not the right book for you. Here we have a very unconventional narrator: Jean, a 12-year-old girl in 1990’s New England, who is the witness [...]


  • Downward

    white nights in split town city is a novel of rural family that is so casual in its reality - the characters are achingly real - that when its brutality strikes, it feels matter of fact. this doesnt diminish the reality of jean, or her family, it enhances it. this novel is recent historical, landing us in 1990 and all that entails, including the baffling gulf war, a war that for our thirteen year old narrator lacks context and exists on television as a counterpoint to her life. its a day by day [...]


  • Anya Yurchyshyn

    Wow did I love this slim, affecting novel! It's a coming-of-age story about a young, curious girl, Jean, but one that's very much for adults. It has incredible prose, unusual and unsettling characters, and wild adventures of the mind and body. It has a rural, timeless setting, but is firmly placed in the 90's and all it's political and sexual confusion, which is one of the many things bearing down on Jean's previously knowable world. I can't recommend this enough, and hope there's a lot more com [...]

    I tore through this thing in one sitting and I think I may have done Annie DeWitt's great writing a grave injustice. I should probably go back and read it again if I have the time because there were parts of this book that have been sticking with me since I put it down. Just really great stuff that I'm still shocked was just 165 pages. Felt like more.


  • Kate Wyer

    This book had me thinking about sexual agency and asking myself questions about that agency (vs. victimization) The narrator is unsettling and new.


  • Tobias

    Dense, haunting prose.


  • Zachary Schwartz

    A must read this summer.
