  • Just nope

    I finished this with the overall impression that nothing really happened. He gets arrested and then nothing.....just nothing and the ending was a let down. I felt like the story was going to lead up to something great only to have it just haphazardly end, like the author just gave up and was like here that's all I got.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A unique point of view

    A quick paced look at how a family is affected when someone is accused of a crime. A point of view that isn't often explored in this way. This book certainly keeps your interest

  • Intentionally Gracious

    I really enjoyed this book. Having lived through my own trauma, books with similar content have been too challenging to get through. This book was thoughtful in demonstrating how to dive into traumatic subject matter in an intentional and gracious way. The perspective Zoe chooses to write from and focus on is important, and should be practiced more often. The best kind of people is relatable, gripping and next to impossible to put down.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The worst kind of writing

    I don't get it. This book was nominated for a Giller award? Really? I can't remember reading a less artfully written, soap opera-ish, amateurish novel. Everything is so literal in the narrative; not an ounce of artfulness or literary skill. It becomes quite obvious early on that the author wants to "enlighten" the reader with plenty of social issues, but please, so obvious in her strategy. I felt like I was in grade 8 being "taught" about social issues, much like an After School TV special would do. Really, this book almost insults one's intelligence.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great, thought provoking read

    This was a brilliant story. I wanted to know that Sadie was going to make it through this crisis with her family. I stayed up all hours of the night reading The Best Kind Of People. I now need to go and read Zoe Whittall's blacklisted titles to appreciate how she has developed as an author.

    Thanks for your feedback!
