Pretty Baby by Mary Kubica ~ #Fiction #Book #Review

25855515Well, you can’t love them all. I heard a lot of hype about this author and decided to check her out. The book was well written, suspenseful, and kept me reading. That said, something about it really pissed me off, crawling under my skin and itching like a rash I couldn’t get to.

All the women in the story struck me as exceptionally weak, and not because of  circumstances or illness. It felt like they were written by a sexist man. (Not trying to offend anyone, plenty of men write superb women characters, but these women seemed liked stereotypes created by a member of the He-man woman haters club.)

I’m not ruling out Kubica’s other books, there’s more good than bad, but this book just wasn’t for me. 4 stars.
