Mini Review: Night Came with Many Stars by Simon Van Booy
For some reason, Night Came with Many Stars reminded me a lot of Where the Crawdads Sing, but it was much better written in my opinion and the characters far less clichéd and irritating (can you tell I was not a fan of the latter book?!) I liked the multiple POVs, and though it took me a moment to get used to the structure of frequent time jumps, after a while I felt it really added a roundness to the story. This is my first book by Van Booy, but I don't think it will be my last. He has a talent for telling a dramatic story in a quiet way, and an insightful manner of looking at the inner and outer lives of his characters that appealed to me. Recommended!
Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with this copy of Night Came with Many Stars in exchange for an honest review.
