Dear reader I just finished reading “The Dinner List” by Rebecca Serle. I picked up this book in hardcover edition from Barnes and Noble when I went to my local store with my dad because the synopsis seemed interesting. My personal review of the book is as follows:
The time jumps throughout the book really confused/pulled me out of the flow of the story(I do understand from a writing prospective why they were used) to the point where a majority of the “harder/sadder” plot points didn’t have the same emotional impact on me because I personally felt like I was reading it from a second hand prospective instead of feeling like I was there in the story with the characters.
I didn’t personally agree with/understand the main character’s prospective on relationships(and why she in my personal opinion kept comparing and justifying her relationship with her boyfriend to the relationship her best friend had/has with her husband) which annoyed me after awhile.
I do feel happy that she was able to get closure on some things/people at the end(I still don’t understand her issues with her best friend). I do personally feel that this book might help someone who is trying to come to terms with grief or loss. Overall I personally rate this book a 4 and half out of 10. Happy reading dear reader 😊. Please like and share this review if you enjoyed it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
